Canned beans are a great convenience; they’re a lifesaver when you’re short on time. This salad is so simple that you might not even notice it at first. However, once you try it, the taste is unforgettable.

Rinse the canned beans thoroughly with boiling water. Drain them well and place them in a bowl.

Cut the seeds and membranes out of the sweet bell pepper, then dice it into small cubes.

Wash the radishes, trim off the tops and tails, and slice them into rounds.

Finely chop the green onions.

Combine all the vegetables in the bowl with the beans.

For the dressing, mix ground cumin, ketchup, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, hot sauce, salt, and pepper in a separate bowl. Stir well.

Pour the dressing over the salad and toss to coat everything evenly.

It’s recommended to refrigerate the salad for an hour to let the flavors meld, but I’ve found that 20 minutes of resting time works well too if you’re in a hurry.

Give it a taste. If you love beans, this salad is made for you. If you’re not a fan, after just one bite, you might find yourself converted into a bean enthusiast.
