Black Bean Corn Salad



On Mother's Day I made this dish early for our supper. It is a perfect summer salad. Healthy, crunchy and delicious.

Black Bean Corn Salad
Half a bag of frozen corn
One can of black beans drained and rinsed
Half a bunch of chopped cilantro
4 radishes chopped
One cucumber chopped
Some chopped fresh chives and parsley
Half green bell pepper chopped
Lemon or  lime juice and olive oil for dressing
salt and pepper
dash of cumin
Cumbled feta (optional)

Thaw frozen corn just a bit then dump all the ingredients in the bowl and mix. Juice of one lemon or two limes and drizzle with olive oil. Salt and pepper to taste. Make this early in the day so the flavors have time to really meld.

Elaine -- this looks YUMMY. I love the idea of radishes in this dish - both a pop of color and flavor :)

Blessings!

Great minds think alike. I just posted some easy, light and healthy summer dishes. I would love this and it is on my list for sure! I eat lighter in the heat of summer plus I don't want to spend much time in the kitchen....I want to be outside....working in my yard and little garden. Thanks so much!
