I found this recipe several years ago after having had it at a bbq joint in NC. It is quite a nice salad taste wise and makes a very pretty dish. I have substituted home grown and cooked dry beans instead of cans and it works fine.
2 cans black beans, rinsed
1 can whole kernel corn, drained
1 can black eye peas, , drained
2 large tomatoes,chopped
1 onion, chopped
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 diced jalapenos, deseeded
optional gr or red pepper bits, olives or diced avocado
For the dressing I generally use an Italian dressing. Is quick and its simple.
or you can make this
1 Tablespoon red wine vinegar
3-4 Tablespoons lime juice
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
mix all ingredients, chill several hours or overnight and serve
It makes a great light summer meal with with tortilla chips.
for those that like meat-- chicken, ham, summer sausage, salami or pepperoni are all great additions
