Corn, Pepper & Black Bean Salad

Memorial Day is almost here.  If you are going to a barbecue or having one at your house try this easy and delicious salad to go along with your hot dogs and hamburgers.  Because there is no mayonnaise in this salad it is great even when the weather is a bit warm.

15 oz. Can black beans, rinsed and drained
15.25 oz. can corn, drained
14.5 oz. Can diced tomatoes w/green chilies, drained
½ red bell pepper, seeded & diced
½ small red onion, diced
¼ c. cilantro, finely chopped
½ c. canola oil
1 tsp. Chili powder
Juice of 1 lime
Salt & Pepper to taste

Combine black beans, corn, tomatoes, bell pepper, red onion, and cilantro in a medium-sized bowl.

In a separate small mixing bowl, combine oil, chili powder, lime juice, and salt & pepper, combine with a whisk.

Pour dressing over bean mixture, gently tossing with a large spoon. Season with additional salt & pepper to taste, then place in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

    This was fast and easy to make, and very tasty. I’m planning on making it for our company in June! Thanks for the recipe. 😀
