Healthy Recipe: Corn and Black Bean Salad

Since fresh corn is still in season but won't be for much longer, why not use it to make this quick and simple dish. Honestly, it'll only take you about 15 minutes to make it. It makes a great side dish, a topping on burgers, or I like to scoop it onto my garden salad.

To see the recipe, just

this looks really pretty and i'm sure that it tastes really good too. i'm a sucker for anything that has corn in it, and tomatoes and green onion! i don't know about the black beans since they scare me, but otherwise i'm game for this. i just sent the recipe to my fiance since he LOVES corn and BB

This sounds like something I make all the time, except I throw in three cans of beans (mixture of black beans and kidney beans - pinto also works), more garlic and cumin, lime juice, red onion, diced jalapeno, red and yellow bell pepper and white wine vinegar. I top it with some chopped avocado and lime juice and serve it over brown rice. It makes quite a bit of food and it's super easy! It tastes even better when it's been in the fridge for a while and has had a chance to absorb some of the flavours.

Awesome! I just got about 2 dozen ears of corn from my inlaws and I've been looking for a good way to use it up before it goes bad. This looks perfect!

Oooh, my husband would love this. For him, I would substitute red bell peppers for tomatoes, as he doesn't like raw tomatoes. Thank you.

I've been throwing something like this together too, except I add red onion and somekind of pepper and skip the garlic. Plus I add a dash of red or sherry vinegar.
