A salad that can be made from the can locker (omitting red bell pepper and fresh cilantro)*, this is great for extended cruising.
Combine in a salad bowl:
1 19-oz cans black beans, rinsed and drained (or 2 c cooked black beans)
1 c fresh corn kernels (2nd choice: frozen and thawed; 3rd choice, canned)
½ red bell pepper, cored, seeded and chopped
½ small red onion, minced
¼ c fresh cilantro, minced
1 T lime juice
1 T olive oil
½ t ground cumin
Pepper to taste
Toss the ingredients and serve at room temperature or refrigerate and bring to room temperature before serving.
* July 2014: For a very simple "cruising version" combine the black beans, drained and rinsed with 1 jar of Trader Joe's Corn and Chile Salsa (corn, sugar, onions, red bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, distilled vinegar, crushed red pepper, black pepper, coriander seed, mustard seed, salt, guar gum).
