Prep: 15 min.
  • 1 lb. canned red beans, or light red kidney beans
  • 3/4 cup cooked long grain rice
  • 1/4 cup green onions, sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh diced tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 tsp. finely ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. dried basil
  • 1/8 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1-1/2 tsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1-1/2 Tbs. extra virgin olive oil

Using a strainer, drain beans and rinse very well, being careful to not break the beans. Transfer to flat serving dish and toss gently with rice, onions, and tomato. Set aside.

Make a creole spice mix in a separate bowl by combining salt, garlic salt, peppers, basil, thyme, and oregano. Stir well to combine. Sprinkle just 1 tsp. of this mix over bean mixture. Add vinegar and olive oil. Let stand 5 minutes, then toss gently with bean mixture. Serve immediately.
