3 Bean Salad

I had come across a recipe that looked really good, but it required grilling and I don't have time for that... so I made my own version.

3 Bean Salad
1 cup cherry tomatoes
2 cups Sweet Corn (or regular corn)
1 white onion, diced
1 can jalapenos
1 15oz can pinto beans,
1 15 oz can black beans
1 15 oz can kidney beans
Juice from one lime
2 tbls EVOO
1/2 bunch of cilantro

Serves 4 (I made this for 8, but after figuring out calories and eating it... we could of doubled it and been good, so stick with this makes 4 servings)

Drain the jalapenos.  Then Saute the jalapenos, onions and corn with the EVOO until onions are translucent and begin to caramelize.  Meanwhile, in a strainer dump all 3 cans of beans.  Rinse and mix together.  In a big bowl dump the beans, then add the corn mixture.  Add the juice from one lime and the cilantro. Mix well.  Enjoy :-)

Optional: Dice 2 avocados and add into mixture (nutrition facts do not include avocado)
