I prepared it with dried beans that I cooked for my black bean soup, but you can make it with canned beans, too. I also used two ears of grilled corn and shelled them, but canned corn work good as well. The rest is a breeze.


Black bean salad with grilled corn and cilantro
Makes 8 servings

1 1/2 cups cooked and drained black beans
1 1/2 cups corn kernels
1 cup tomato, seeded and diced
1/2 cup minced onion
1/4 cup of red bell pepper, finely diced
1 1/2 cups of cilantro leaves
1/4 cup of olive oil
3 tablespoons of vinegar (I used red wine vinegar)


1. In a bowl combine the beans, corn, tomato, onion, pepper and cilantro.

2. In a cup, emulsify olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper.

3. Add the vinaigrette to the salad and toss. Cover and marinate in the fridge for at least half an hour.

4. Serve cold. This salad is much more flavorful the next day.
