Spicy and Sweet 3 Bean Treat

Here’s a classic to beat the summer heat; 3 bean salad. Serve it as a side or make a meal of it with some fresh cornbread. The naturally sweet roasted corn, garden fresh tomato and mango counterbalance theheat from the chili peppers. The spices combine with the natural flavors of the vegetables and fruits and the acidity of the tomato and lemon as well as the oil to provide a cohesive dressing for this seasonally fresh beauty!
