Finely dice the cherries, bell peppers, jalapeno peppers and onion. Finely chop the cilantro and parsley. Then toss all of the ingredients with the lime juice and pinch of salt and pepper. 

TIP: if you’re short on time, pulse all of the ingredients together in a food processor.

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • 2 cans no salt added black beans, rinsed
