This weekend was absolutely amazing and the weather was gorgeous. Yesterday, we went to my friend’s Cinco de Mayo’s Party and it was so nice to have some fun and laugh again. Today for dinner, I made this simple corn and black bean salad which I served with some juicy BBQ ribs. I had the corn salad as my entrée, but my husband loves rice and had to have some.
I take pleasure to share this simple recipe with you, hope you like it.
Corn and Black Bean Salad recipe
1 can, 14 ounces, black beans, rinsed and drained
2 cups frozen corn kernels
1 small red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
½ red onion, chopped
1 ½ teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons hot sauce (I use Tabasco)
1 lime, juiced
2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive oil
Salt and pepper
Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Let stand at least 15 minutes for the flavors to combine. Toss and serve
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and would love to hear what you did.
Mmmm …… it looks really delicious, so I want to taste it. You’ll have to cook yourself at home.
Cooking is therapeutic for me, regardless how tired, I am, I always have the energy to cook, Valdas.
I love corn and black bean salsa. I like to mix it into taco salads.
That’s what my husband did with the leftover, Ashley.
This is so simple and looks so yummy! My husband’s uncle made something similar before and it was gone quickly, now I know how to make it myself!
I am glad you like it, Stephanie.

Yum, I’ve never seen this dish before. I am a vegetarian and I enjoy finding new bean dishes to try out, thank you. I really want to try out this corn and black bean salad fore sure.
My friend is vegetarian, and I am learning some great recipes from her, and they are super delicious, Glenda.

This looks fabulous! I love how you made it a little spicy with Tabasco.
I love that combination. I’ve never tried it with cumin and hot sauce. I usually go Italian dressing. Can’t wait to try your way.
