Colorful Bean Salad

Going to the ladies salad luncheon today made me think of the little cookbook I purchased at a previous luncheon.  There are lots of great salad recipes in there!  One of my favorites is the Colorful Bean Salad!  It's a very healthy snack, side, or even meal!  Another great option is to use it as a salsa for tortilla chips!!  It's delicious!!  ( . . . and very easy to make!!)

Colorful Bean Salad

3 T. olive oil
3 T. cider vinegar
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. ground cumin
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
1 can kidney beans
1 can black beans
1 can Mexicorn
1/4 c. thinly sliced green onions

Drain and rinse beans.  Drain Mexicorn.  In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients for the dressing.  Mix well.  Add beans, corns, and green onions.  Stir to coat.  Cover and refrigerate!  Enjoy!
