This is a classic three bean salad that is good for vegetarians, and meat eaters alike. My four year old will eat it, and she is not crazy about beans. So we named it after her.

I however find that it is much better after it has had time to soak in all the flavors of the “dressing”.

This fresh salsa is so easy, you'll wonder why you ever used to buy the canned stuff. It's very spicy, so omit some of the peppers if you're serving to a crowd that likes salsa a little more toned down.
Back in the day I had to work, it was 12-hour shifts, 7 days in a row. On Sundays when we were on daytime shifts (we worked nights, too, but not on the same week!), we'd get together and bring in a really nice dinner. This dip was always required, not just by my crew, but by the day-staffers that came in on Monday, too!
