Mexican Bean salad

A salad is a dish consisting of small pieces of food, which may be mixed with a sauce or salad dressing. They are typically served cold. Salads can incorporate a variety of foods including vegetables, fruits, cheese, and grains and eggs too. Garden salads use a base of leafy greens; they are common enough that the word salad alone often refers specifically to garden salads. Other types include bean salad, Greek salad, and many more.

Beans are also high in protein, complex carbohydrates and iron, with one cup of cooked beans providing between nine to thirteen grams of fiber. Soluble fiber can help lower blood cholesterol. Adults are recommended to have up to two to three servings. Bean salad is a common salad dish composed of various beans -- green beans and/or yellow wax beans, cooked garbanzo beans, cooked kidney beans and typically onions, peppers or other vegetables, in a vinaigrette broth, sometimes sweetened with sugar.
