"A colorful, tongue-tantalizing salad using black beans and tart apples. This salad can be served plain, on a bed of lettuce, or with tortilla chips." — Mickey

red bell pepper, chopped
2 (15 ounce) cans
black beans, rinsed and drained
Granny Smith apples, unpeeled, cored, and chopped
chopped fresh cilantro
Good flavor, but I added garlic instead of cumin. I also added lime juice in addition to lemon. I gave it five stars because it's really easy and a great way other than black bean soup to prepare black beans!
Very good recipe as is. Next time I will cook garlic with the vegetables. I will also add a seeded, deveined jalapeno pepper before chilling and use lime instead of lemon. Excellent alternative to your regular black bean salad or when you're trying to use up the last of the season's apples.
While this recipe by itself is perfect, I did make a few alterations. I did not add any salt to this recipe, I added a green pepper as well as another red pepper. The main thing that I would suggest doing is to put the apples into a separate bowl and toss them with lemon juice so that they do not brown.
Love it! Easy and keeps well- great for lunches and picnics.
