Bright Haricot Bean Salad

Bright colors in my food makes me happy. Even more, when they a natural vibrant full of flavor. When I look at a plate with different bright colors it feels to me so inviting. Roasted bell peppers are my favorite, they add son much flavor and color, that I just incorporate them in food when ever I have them around.

I roast the bell peper on the comal (an iron cast skillet). It takes them about one hour to an hour and twenty minutes to be dancing on the comal, switching sides, turning around, until they are all browned on every side. I know it is a long time, but precisely this slow roast cooking is what gives them such wonderful flavor.

Beans are so good companions because they absorb all flavors, this is why I say they go with everything, love them.

  1. Thank you so much for this recipe! And for the tip about the peppers. I cant wait to try it. I am ashamed to say that I have NEVER eaten any Mexican food and it is certainly time that I did! Looking forward to hearing more from you and starting a journey with new tastes and flavours.
