Hot Pepper, Black Bean, and Cherry Tomato Salad

Inspired by Courtney and her hanging garden…

Warning: If you have an aversion to spicy food, cilantro, or arugula, this is not for you.

Note: The version I had for dinner did not have scallions in it, but I wished it had, so I added it to the ingredient list, untested.

1 basket ripe cherry tomatoes, halved
1 cup cooked or canned black beans
1 jalapeno (or other) hot pepper (more or less, to taste), sliced into rings
2 scallions, chopped (with whites)
1 handful fresh cilantro, chopped
2 sprigs fresh oregano leaves, stems removed
1 tbs olive oil
juice of 1/2 lemon

Mix all the vegetables, beans, and herbs, except the arugula, in a salad bowl. Season with lemon juice, olive oil, and salt. Toss with (or serve over a bed of) arugula. Enjoy…
