Corn and Black Bean Salad

I had lunch at a friends house a few weeks ago, and she served this fabulous corn and black bean salad. I have been looking for a good recipe like this, so I was very excited when she brought me a copy of the recipe! There are many different variations to this recipe, so I will just post the one I did. But, if you make this, get creative and throw in whatever sounds good, you might be surprised!

*I apologize for the blurry picture, I think I was just too excited to eat it! Just be grateful you're getting a picture

Corn and Black Bean Salad

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can corn, drained and rinsed
1/2 c (or more) or chopped fresh cilantro

Combine in a bowl and let chill while making the dressing.

2 tbsp vinegar (be creative and use whatever vinegar you want. I used 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar and 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar)
1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1/2 tsp salt (I added a bit more to carry the flavor)
2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp garlic powder

Whisk the dressing ingredients together then pour onto vegetables. Store in the refrigerator.


  1. Mmmm, I think I'd add some avacado, tomato and onion and 86 the cilantro ;). It looks good though!

  2. Yum, I made this for dinner tonight. Simple and so good!
