I love this salad - great to bring to a cookout. We'll be grilling this afternoon and since I have a fine crop of cilantro growing in a pot on my deck, I thought of this recipe. First time this summer. Delicious.
(Note the abundance of dressing in the photo. I just made it so it hasn't had time to absorb and glom on yet. Don't be afraid of using lots of dressing - you can always drain some off later.)
Bean, Pepper & Corn Salad
1 16-ounce can of black beans, rinsed and drained
1 16-ounce can of white navy beans, rinsed and drained (I usually omit these)
1 cup chopped red onion or Vidalia onion
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 cup frozen corn, thawed (baby white corn is best)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 1/2 to 2 cups cumin vinaigrette
Cumin Vinaigrette (makes 2 cups)
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 1/2 cups extra virgin olive oil
1. Mix up the vinaigrette and set aside.
2. Put all salad ingredients in a bowl. Pour in the vinaigrette and stir to coat.
3. Chill for 30 minutes or more. Stir again before serving.
