Simple Peruvian (Mayocoba) Beans Salad
        Peruvian beans are also called Mayocoba beans/ Canary beans, they are ivory yellow beans which is popular in Jalisco as well as much in Southern Mexico. I got this beans in bulk in nearby Mexican Grocery store. As I am vegetarian, I always includes lentils /beans in my diet to get a protein. As far as the protein profile, it is similar to pintos in that essential amino acids missing for a complete nutritional protein are MET/CYS. The missing ones can be obtained by eating grains such as rice or corn. That is why rice and beans is such an healthy combo. Coming to this recipe, it is simple, healthy and absolutely yummy.  This salad features Peruvian beans, onion, tomato, tangy lime juice,salt and pepper. They are high in fiber and protein taste great when served with chips, or lunch served with fresh tortillas. This salad is low in fat and loaded with antioxidants.
