Pinto Bean Salad can serve as a side dish or a light meal. Make this delicious, refreshing and healthful salad with a staple of Texas and southwestern cooking -- pinto beans -- and you'll be more than pleased. The combination of flavors and textures is amazing.
Combine the lemon and lime juice and salt. Beat in the olive oil gradually until well mixed. Add the garlic and cilantro. Check seasonings and add more salt and pepper, if desired.
Pour dressing over the warm beans and mix until well coated. Add the chopped tomatoes and onions and toss well.
Note: If you forget to put your pintos in to soak the night
before, there is a shortcut: Put the beans in a large pan with
plenty of water, bring them to a boil and boil for 2 minutes; then
turn off the heat, cover, and let them soak for 1 hour. Then
drain and cook as above.
