3 Bean Salad

This three bean salad is sooooo  good that I have a confession to make.  I made this yesterday to take to a party tonight and Hubbster and I ended up eating about 3/4 of it so there wasn't any left for the party.  Whoops.  This is super simple to make, although a bit time consuming because of all the chopping/veggie prep but it is so worth it.  If you make it the day before you eat it the flavors have more time to marinate and it is even better.  


1 - 15 oz can black beans
1 - 15 oz can kidney beans
1 - 15 oz can cannellini beans
2 peppers chopped (I used about 2/3 of a red, orange and yellow pepper, you can also use green)
1 red onion finely chopped
1/4 c olive oil
1/4 c red wine vinegar
2 T lime juice (fresh is best)
1 T lemon juice
1 T salt
1 clove crushed garlic
1 bunch of chopped cilantro
chili powder and pepper to taste

Rinse and drain beans.  I like to toss them in the colander to start to get them mixed together and get the excess water out.

Chop the cilantro and onions.

Chop the peppers.  Gently combine beans and vegetables in large bowl.  In small bowl whisk together the oil, vinegar, lemon juice, lime juice, salt, garlic, pepper and chili powder.  Pour over bean mixture, chill and enjoy!  Sometimes I eat this plain and sometimes with tortilla chips - either way is great!
