Black Beans with Peppers and Cumin Vinaigrette
1-1/4 cups dry Black Beans
4 to 5 cups water
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon cumin

1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 yellow bell pepper, diced

After soaking, drain beans and rinse well. Place beans in a large saucepan with water and bay leaf. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Lower heat, cover and simmer until beans are tender, about 1 to 1-1/2 hours. Drain.
Combine salt, vinegar, garlic, cumin, hot pepper sauce, cilantro, and olive oil in a small bowl. Pour over warm beans. Toss well. Add remaining ingredients, except cilantro sprigs and toss gently. Serve warm or at room temperature. Garnish with cilantro.
