This is one of our big favorite side dishes in the summer. We've enjoyed it even more this year since we are growing our own cilantro.
1/4 cup olive oil
3 Tbsp fresh lime juice (we confess, sometimes we use the bottled stuff)
1 tsp each minced garlic and salt and pepper
3 cups raw or cooked fresh corn kernels
1 can (about 15 oz) black beans, rinsed
3 ripe tomatoes, cut in chunks
1 each green and red bell pepper, chopped
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
- Dressing: Mix oil, lime juice, garlic, salt and pepper in a 2 1/2 quart serving bowl.
- Add remaining ingredients; toss gently to mix and coat.
