Southwest Rainbow Bean Salad

Pin It


This Rainbow Bean Salad is great to serve when you are having a BBQ or a potluck, or anytime.

The flavors of this salad start with 2 cans of Ranch Style Pinto Beans with Jalapenos.  If you look at the link, it is the next to last product on the page.

The rainbow that this recipe name refers to is the red and yellow bell peppers that are in it.  There is also celery, onions and a little bit of cilantro.

The dressing is fun because it has hot pepper (jalapeno) jelly, chile powder, lime juice, grapeseed oil and honey as it’s main ingredients.

If you enjoy Southwest flavors I think you will love this healthy salad!
