I had a dinner party over the weekend, and in addition to chicken, rice and salad, I wanted a summery side dish to serve. I love black bean salad but I'd never made it and didn't have a recipe. I found this dish at MyRcipes.com and was very pleased with the result, as were my guests! It was so good, I thought I'd share it today. Enjoy!
Corn and Black Bean Salad
1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon paprika
2 (15 1/2-ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
2 cups frozen whole kernel corn, thawed
1 large orange bell pepper, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 small jalapeño peppers, seeded and minced
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Whisk together first 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Add beans and remaining ingredients; toss well to coat. Cover and let stand 1 hour, tossing occasionally.
