Calico Black Bean Salad

 Calico Black Bean Salad
This salad reflects the Caribbean culture here in South Florida. The combination of black beans, tomatoes and onions with a vinaigrette is great alongside pork or chicken. It’s perfect for picnics and convenient, too, since you can make it a day ahead.
