How to make it
- Toss diced onion with juice from 1 lime. Set aside while preparing remaining ingredients.(this isn't necessary but I think it's a great way to reduce the bite from raw onions. I do this for salsa too :)
- Combine all 3 beans, peppers and tomatoes in large serving bowl.
- In separate bowl, combine garlic, juice from 1 remaining lime, zest from 1/2 a lime, honey, cumin, coriander, salt and pepper.
- Mix well then whisk in oil until well combined.
- Add onion, with the soaking juice, to the bean/veggies then pour over the dressing.
- Toss well to combine. Taste and add more lime juice, salt and/or pepper, if needed.
- Serve immediately, if desired, but it's better if chilled for a couple hours.
- (I add cilantro just before serving, but you can add it after the dressing, if you prefer)
