Tequila Lime Bean Salad

With the weather finally warming up here in Jersey, I get excited to start BBQ’ing and think of new recipes to make and bring to parties.  I had this bottle of tequila and have yet to really use it. I also happen to have a bunch of limes on hand so I put the two together and voila!  Tequila Lime Bean Salad!  I checked my kitchen to see what I could add and I found black beans (so now we added beans into the title!) limes, threw in some fresh tomatoes and cucumbers, and added some fresh parsley, S&P, and EVOO.

The tequila is not too overpowering but adds a nice zing to it! All I ask is that you use good quality Tequila – not house Tequila! Here I used Avion but Casamiagos is another great one too! If you are not a drinker – then just skip it.  It will still be delicious!  You can swap for more EVOO & lime juice or even red wine vinegar.

As simple as slicing the cherry tomatoes, drain and rinse the beans and cut up the cucumber then throw all together in a large bowl.

Add in the tequila and EVOO, cut, and squeeze the limes. Next, sprinkle on the salt and pepper and fresh parsley. I like to let it sit and marinate a little before serving. Could also be made ahead of time and kept in the fridge. Adding diced avocado or olives is also a great option!

Love this as a side dish or on its own for those plant based eaters.
