Corn, Tomato, and Black Bean Salad
A tasty southwest salad.
2 c. corn kernels (cooked)
1 (15oz.) can black beans (rinsed and drained)
2 c. cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered
1 avocado, cut into small cubes
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1 jalapeno, seeded and minced (optional)
1 clove garlic, minced
Pinch of cumin (optional)
1 Tbsp. lime juice
2 Tbsp. - 4 Tbsp. chopped cilantro or parsley (optional/to your taste)
Combine all and allow to sit about 10-15 minutes before serving, to allow flavors to meld. Taste and add 1 –2 tsp. more lime juice if you wish, and salt to your taste. Really good the next day too!
