Cold Black Bean Summer Salad

Cold Black Bean Summer Salad

This salad is great any time of year but especially when you have no interest in turning on the stove. Zesty, crunchy and with little bites of sweet corn, this is great for a simple meal or to bring to a potluck. Fold it up in tortillas with a grain and some greens for a complete meal.  


Cold Black Bean Summer Salad
4 cups cooked black beans, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels
1 cup red bell pepper, diced
1 cup red onion, diced
1 or 2 avocados, diced

Place in a large bowl together.

Four tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil or olive oil
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons minced or crushed garlic
1 teaspoon cayenne, optional
Salt and pepper to taste

In a small cup, mix together the lime juice, oil, cumin, garlic and cayenne. Pour over the black bean mix, and toss together. Season with salt and pepper. This salad is best if you let it marinate together for the flavors to develop for an hour or two before serving.
