Black Bean & Corn Salad

Black Bean and Corn Salad
This is a super-easy recipe that is also super-delicious! We enjoy it regularly at our house, and it usually meets with rave reviews from guests - and is usually devoured at potlucks.

 It is so easy, and requires so few ingredients that it lends itself well to those situations when cooking is difficult or impossible: college dorm cooking, hotel cooking, and military barracks cooking.

I think this with a few lettuce leaves would make a nice filling for a wrap, too!

Black Bean & Corn Salad
Mix all together & enjoy:
2 Cans Black Beans, drained & rinsed (or 3 cups home cooked)
3 Cups frozen Corn, thawed (I rinse mine in a sieve under warm water)*
2 Fresh Tomatoes, Chopped
1/4 cup Lime Juice
3 Tablespoons Taco Seasoning (or add purchased Taco Seasoning to taste - about 1 1/2 pkts)
*Optional ingredients, add any of the following if desired: Diced Avocado, Diced Bell Pepper, Scallions, Fresh Chopped Cilantro (Avocado is our favorite)

*I think that canned corn would also work here for those who like it. It's just not my thing.

    1. It's cool to know that Wildtree makes a Taco Seasoning - ready-made can be quite convenient sometimes : )

Welcome!
Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology. (at the current moment, I cannot manage to reply to posts on my blog at all -despite repeated attempts to do so. I DO appreciate your comments, and hopefully this glitch will be fixed soon! )

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
