Our black bean salad

I can't believe I have never posted anything about our most favorite salad, but after searching today, it seems that this one slipped by. It is a Black Bean Salad that we have been making for years and we really love it.

The recipe is so simple, it is not a recipe. I simple add corn, either fresh, cooked, corn on the cob or out of a can, black beans that are rinsed, sliced green onions, red peppers, a jalapeno, lots of cilantro , a sprinkling of salt and olive oil. Let this marinated for a short time and serve along side a steak or chops or chicken, etc.

We love this so much. I hope you will try it.

Oh no...I forgot to mention a very important ingredient. Lime!! Squeeze lots of lime juice onto the salad. It is the topper!!

  3. I make something similar and serve it with tortilla chips! I love the combination of flavors. I never thought of it as a side dish but it would be wonderful!

  9. Susan! I am just about to make that salad and with an avocado sitting on the counter. We love it.
    I wonder how that will go along side of the fresh Copper River Salmon we are having for dinner tonight and with some fresh (sauteed) wild Kale. ;)
    Hope your day is spectacular.

  10. First of all Susan, I am in love with your nectarine sorbet! Such a gorgeous color and I bet it tastes fabulous!

    And we agree on black bean salad. I adore it. I have a similar recipe but oddly enough, it doesn't have olive oil in the dressing. It's an odd mix of soy sauce, mustard vinegar, water and Tabasco. ( I think I was on a no-fat diet at the time!)
    You've reminded me how good it was, so I'll make it your way with your dressing!
    Hope you're having a lovely weekend, Susan!
