Black Bean and White Corn Salad


Are you looking for the perfect summer salad, but with an added protein punch?  If so, give the following salad a try:

  1. 1 can of black beans (dried beans offer better value and quality, but they do require prep work)
  2.  Half a bag of frozen organic white corn
  3. 1 finely diced red onion
  4. 1 bunch of fresh cilantro finely diced
  5. 1-2 small Kirby cucumbers finely diced (remove seeds and skin)
  6. olive oil, salt, and pepper all to taste (don’t skimp on the olive oil)
  7. dried oregano to taste
  8.  1/4 cup of freshly squeezed lime juice.

Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.  I usually like to make a big batch and use as a side dish throughout the week!  Oh, I think the salad goes well with Zinfandel, so try the two together next time!
