Pinoy Bean Salad

A little twist on the Mexican Bean Salad. It’s our go-to meal if we sometimes are too busy too cook. Pretty easy as you just need to boil the beans for an hour. =)

3 cups beans
1 cup whole kernel corn
1 big onion – diced
5-6 tomatoes – chopped
1 ripe avocado – sliced
Bunch of coriander

A lot of calamansi (Filipino lime)
Ground Cumin

1. Boil the beans for about an hour or until soft. Drain and let it cool.
2. Assemble the rest of the ingredients in a big bowl
3. Mix the dressing
4. When ready to eat, add the beans to the rest of the ingredients, pour the dressing.
5. Serve with poached egg. Top with a bit of cumin and coriander on top.
