You could call this Chilled Chili if you'd like. Sort of like the hot stuff- delicious, filling, and easy-- but colder! And tomato vinaigrette? You could put it on just about anything and it would be delicious.
Cold Chili Salad with Smokey Tomato Vinaigrette
12 cherry or grape tomatoes, chopped
3 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 1/2 Tbsp canola or other vegetable oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp chili powder
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (optional- to taste)
1/3 tsp ground cumin
3/4 tsp liquid smoke
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 can no salt added kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 can no salt added pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 can no salt added white beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/3 cup fresh chopped tomato
1/2 large yellow onion, chopped
1/2 sweet red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
For vinaigrette: combine all ingredients in a blender and mix until combined.
For salad: combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Add vinaigrette and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 3-4 hours. Serve garnished with fresh cilantro if desired.
