Healthy Tri-Bean Cilantro Salad

tri-color-bean-saladThis is one of my favorite healthy warm weather salads.   It’s a great side dish that is so easy to prepare and if you love beans as much as I do, I am certain that you will enjoy this.  It’s a cinch to bring along to a party or picnic, and the vibrant colors are appealing to the eye. It also keeps well in the refrigerator as leftovers.  I add extra cilantro because I can never get enough, but there’s room to play with this one and add less or more of your favorites.

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/4 cup olive oil
Salt & pepper
Cayenne
3 scallions, sliced
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 red onion, finely chopped
1 can small red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 can northern white beans, drained and rinsed
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

In a large bowl whisk together
