Black Bean and Corn Salad II Recipe
A tasty lime dressing, with cayenne and garlic added for kick, make this salad a bit different from the usual.
This is the best cold bean salad recipe ever!! I made it this weekend for a birthday party and got rave reviews. Everyone wanted the recipe. I used frozen white corn instead of yellow. I agree with other reviewers of this recipe....the cilantro is key....dont omit....the flavors are incredible. There was enough dressing, so it wasn't dry at all...and it was a very "fresh" tasting salad. Will make over and over....perfect bbq side dish!
A simple cumin dressing is tossed with a salad bowl full of kernel corn and black beans. It's sensational as is but we think it would be super rolled in a warm tortilla with a dollop of sour cream.
Beans, corn, scallions, bell peppers and onions are mixed together and napped with a vinaigrette dressing that has had a few niceties added: cilantro, pepper, cayenne and cumin. Toss and let sit overnight. Wonderful!
This salad is a kaleidoscope of color and taste - black beans, yellow corn, green peppers, and red, red tomatoes. Lime juice, garlic and jalapeno give it some punch.
I'm not a cook by any means, so this was very easy and right up my alley. I made a few changes to it, though. Add more lime juice, use less EVOO. I didn't have cayenne pepper, so I used some kind of Cajun seasoning that worked well. Instead of 2 cans of black beans, I would use just one next time. I sliced the kernels off two ears of corn. My boyfriend said it tasted fresh and less salty than canned corn. We had extra avocado, so we ended up using 1 1/2 instead of just one. Use 1 package of cherry tomatoes (slice them in half) instead of 2 chopped tomatoes. Add 1/2 package of feta. Like I said, super easy and very good! It made good leftovers, too.
This is one of my favorite salads. I always double the dressing and use half for the salad and half if it needs it later. I used cherry tomatoes and shake out the seeds so the salad doesn't get too watery. I also add extra corn..delicious!
This salad is fabulous! I made this for a get-together and it was a hit. It is very colorful and the lime dressing is very tasty. All of the ingredients work very well together. Yum!!
