Looking for a light summer salad? This Puerto Rican bean salad is for you!
Recently, we had a potluck baby shower at my office and I had no idea what to make. I always get nervous about what to cook for a group. I usually don’t want to bring a dessert and I really try to accommodate all of the dietary restrictions that I know of. For this particular baby shower, I wanted to make something special for the mother to be and when I asked around was told that she had specifically requested bean salad. I looked through a few different cookbooks, some notes from my old blogging days, and a few websites. I figured I would go with something Puerto Rican—since the expectant mother is from the islands. I came up with this recipe—so flavorful, so fresh and colorful—perfect for spring time. It goes great with chips and guacamole (and beer!) or as a side with a platter of grilled chicken or fish. Enjoy!
