This Alfresco Bean Salad is not only a colorful salad but healthy as well. Great for your next BBQ. You won't be disappointed.
This Alfresco Bean Salad is a super healthy and easy to make bean salad that is the perfect side dish for your next BBQ or any other event for that matter.
The lime juice and chili powder in the vinaigrette is the perfect dressing for this salad. While I only used 1 Cup of diced tomatoes, you can easily add more or less to adjust to your liking.
When I am in a rush I love making bean salads like this one. They are super quick to bring together and you most likely have all the ingredients on hand.
Another thing I love about these kinds of recipes is that you can easily experiment and substitute any ingredient for something else. That’s the beauty of sharing recipes is that you can easily make it your own!

Wear disposable gloves when handling Hot Peppers.
The capsaicin in hot peppers is what makes peppers hot. If you handle hot peppers gloveless, it’s a guarantee that you’re in for a nasty case of chili burn, both on your fingers and anywhere you rub. Like your face. Ouch!
Even if you wear disposable gloves, be careful about what you touch. The gloves are going to protect your fingers, but touching any part of your body with the gloves after you’ve handled hot peppers can lead to severe chili burn. Resist the temptation to rub your eyes. Wait until you’ve removed your gloves and washed your hands thoroughly with soap.
