Wow, those sound delicious!

I'll have to tell my brother about your watermelon mojitos. He's lost in mojito-land, never to be recovered. They're his new favorite drink!

Wow, I came here for pinto beans and ended up with a mojita!

We cook all our beans in the pressure cooker, takes a little bit of practice to get them perfect but we've made a laminated chart of the bean and pea varieties and their cooking times, so we just pull that out for reference. We have a lot of chillies, soups and stews during the colder weather so we've always got some cooked beans on hand, not so much in the summer, but a bean salad is always nice. We were away this past weekend and one of our friends made a mango, black bean and cucumber salad that was absolutely to die for, I had him email me the recipe for that one.

Bean salad is how all of this got started! We stayed with a friend in Santa Fe and she prepared garbanzo bean salad for us, it was delicious! DH has told me for years now that he does not like garbanzo beans, he enjoyed the salad our friend make and didn't seem to have any issues with my preparing garbanzo bean salad when we got back home. And then I found this article:

Benefits of Garbanzo Beans

As long as I vary the beans, the salads are a good way to incorporate different fresh fruits and vegetables. I fresh and tasty food.
