Black Bean & Corn Salad Recipe
Black Bean & Corn Salad
Serves 6 (Makes about 4 1/2 cups)
This super easy salad is so versatile – great when you are travelling, camping, or on the boat. Serve with chips as a dip, or spoon on top of grilled chicken, add lettuce and make it into a salad.
- 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 1/2 cups frozen corn, thawed (See Cook’s Tip)
- 1 tomato, chopped
- 1/2 bunch cilantro, roughly chopped
- 1/4 cup red onion, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup green onion, thinly sliced
- 2 Tbsp jalapeño pepper, finely chopped (optional)
- 2 Tbsp Metropolitan Market Olive Oil
- 3 Tbsp fresh lime juice
- 1 avocado, peeled and chopped
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Tortilla chips, for serving
- Combine beans, corn, tomato, cilantro, red onion, green onion, jalapeño, lime juice and olive oil in a bowl. Cover and chill for a few hours for flavors to meld.
- Just before serving, stir in avocado and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Serve with chips.
- Cook’s Tip:
- When in season, use the kernels from one ear of fresh corn instead of frozen.
- Add some spice! Stir in 1 tsp ground cumin.
