1 can or 12-16 oz Dark red kidney beans thoroughly rinsed and drained
1 can or 12-16 oz Black beans thoroughly rinsed and drained
1 can or 12-16 oz Black eyed peas thoroughly rinsed and drained
1 to 2 cups of diced/thinly shredded Green Cabbage
1 to 2 cups of diced/thinly shredded  Purple Cabbage
1 cup of diced Celery
½ or 1 whole diced Red Bell Pepper
½ or 1 whole diced Yellow or Orange or Green Bell Pepper
¼ cup of finely chopped Parsley
1 small diced white onion
(optional) 1/3 cup of raw diced Broccoli and/or Cauliflower
(optional – for a kick) 1 finely diced large Jalapeno pepper – without seeds
4 to 5 lemons - juiced
2/3 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
(optional)1 teaspoon of salt or you can salt to taste

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together in one big bowl. Note, if I don’t have all the ingredients I make it with what I do have on hand and it usually tastes and looks great.

Caution: This makes a very large salad amt. We usually eat from it for a few days or make it when we have guests over.
