Black Bean and Corn Salad that doubles as an amazing salad is filled with all your favorite things - black beans, corn, tomatoes, red pepper, and red onion all in a simple lime and cumin dressing. 

I have always been a sucker for a good corn and black bean salad, which is weird for someone who pretty much never ate beans growing up. The only kind of beans I was familiar with was baked beans, which my grandmother made from scratch, and we had probably once a year. And even though hers were probably the best around, I still wasn't a huge fan. Fast forward and now as a California transplant, beans are something I eat constantly thanks to all the amazing Mexican food you can find here. It started with refried beans and now I pretty much love them all.

Now my favorite way to enjoy this salad is with fresh corn either cut directly off the cob or grilled so it gets a nice char. Canned and frozen corn work as well, but it won't have the same sweetness or crunch. Usually I throw in some cilantro as well to brighten things up and I pour an onscene amount of hot sauce in my salad. This is totally optional but I love the bite of the vinegar and punch of the heat.
