Summer Salad

One of our favorite dishes in the summer is this summer Salad.  It is filled with nutritious beans and is  healthy, light and very filling.

15 ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
15 oz can pinto beans , rinsed and drained
15 oz can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
Rinsed and drained , rinsed and drained

15 oz bag frozen sweet corn kernels
small chopped red onion
2 garlic cloves, chopped
2-3 chopped bell peppers (different colors make it prettier but not necessary)

Mix all of the above ingredients together in a large bowl

THe Dressing

1 tbs ground pepper
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
The juice of two limes

Whisk all of the ingredients for the dressing together and pour over the vegetables.  This can be eaten immediately, but the taste will be enhanced after they sit and marinate together for a bit.
