Recipe

This is one of my favorite salads to make for a barbecue, picnic, or outdoor event.  First off, black beans and corn seems to be a crowd pleader and no one wants to bring the untouched salad.  Secondly, it holds up really well.  You can make it ahead of time and don't have to worry about wilting or soggy ingredients even if it sits outside for a bit.   I usually try to use fresh corn in the salad if I can find it because I love the crisp and fresh taste.  I leave it raw although you could grill it first if you prefer.  Then toss everything together with a simple lime and cumin dressing.  Leftovers make great quick tacos, rice bowls, and salads.
