Minty Bean Salsa

Minty bean salsa makes for a good accompaniment to a main dish. The fresh mint, tomato, coriander, and lemon used, not only gives zing to the dish but also increases the nutritional value by providing essential nutrients like vitamin A and C, folic acid, and iron. You can serve it at room temperature or serve it chilled.
