Heirloom Tomato Salad

1 pint heirloom grape tomatoes, halved (Sweet Sungolds from Beaverdam Creek Farm or the medley including Cherokee Purples from Fresh Harvest Co-op are best)
1 yellow, orange or red (any sweet) bell pepper, big dice
2 TBSP red onion, very fine dice
2-3 TBSP fresh jalapeno or chili pepper, minced (I used green chili pepper from Beaverdam Creek)
lemon zest to taste
1 15 oz. can black beans, rinsed & drained

Stir gently to combine.

1/4 C. fresh squeezed lemon juice (I added a splash of Rose’s Lime Juice as used in cocktails too)
1/4 C. olive oil
2 TBSP Ancient Family Secret Spice mix (from Wild Duck Soup Emporium)

Mix well & allow to set for 30 minutes before tossing with tomato mixture.
Best served at room temp but can be refrigerated for several days.
