Black Bean Lime Salad




This stuff is super popular at our house. As soon as I make it, we eat it. It's so fresh and light tasting, what isn't to love? Here is what you'll need:

(1) 15-ounce can of black beans--drained and rinsed
(1) can corn--drained and rinsed
(1) Red bell pepper, diced
(2) Garlic cloves, minced
(1) Shallot, minced (or can use a red onion if you prefer)
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
1 1/2 Tablespoons sugar
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
5 Tablespoons Olive Oil
1 Teaspoon lime zest
4 Tablespoons fresh lime juice

Simply mix everything together in bowl. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours before serving, or even over night. Stir and serve!

My husband likes to add tomatoes or avocados to his sometimes. They taste great, but only add if you're planning on eating the entire container because they get kind of funky! If you leave them out the salad will be good for a few days, that is if it doesn't all get eaten before then! Enjoy! :)

  8. I love when salads like this or salsa use chili powder for heat instead of jalapeno I am not a fan of big chunks of raw jalapeno. Thanks for linking up at FFF.

    1. I know exactly what you mean! It never seems like you can get it diced well enough so you don't have that. I love your blog Brianne!
