#58 - Corn and Black Bean Salad

Pete Beck made this salad at Grandma Bebe's house earlier this summer, and since it was really tasty and pretty easy to make, we thought it deserved a spot in the Hundred.

Corn and Black Bean Salad

From Pete Beck
This is a corn and black bean salad, so make sure you have corn and black beans. You're also gonna need a red onion, a lime, and cilantro if you have some. We didn't.
Basically, you're just cutting and mixing here.
We've been getting some really nice corn on the cob from Farmer Randy this summer, and this is the first time that we've cut the kernels off of the ear. It's surprisingly entertaining.
This is a really great summer salad. It's light and flavorful and has that zing of citrus from the lime.
This is so easy, you really don't have an excuse not to make this.
  • 3 ears of corn, husked
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 lime
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • Salt
  • Black pepper
  1. Fill a large pot with water and add corn.
  2. Set on high heat. Remove corn when water begins to boil.
  3. When slightly cooled, slice kernels off of cob.
  4. Mix corn, onion, and black beans in a large bowl.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the juice of one lime and the olive oil.
  6. Toss dressing with corn salad, and season with salt and pepper to taste.
