recipe 28: FIESTA BLACK BEAN SALAD(sides, beans, salad)

SOURCE:  Another great recipe from my friend Christine. She always brings the most delicious salads and soups to potlucks. This is so flavorful and delicious, and SO HEALTHY too.   I LOVE this recipe and have a huge star next to it in THE BINDER.  This is a really versatile recipe as well.  It can be eaten alone as a side dish/salad. It can be eaten as a salsa. It can be used as a dip. 

in a small bowl whisk together the following:
2 TBSP Balsamic Vinegar
1 TBSP Olive Oil
3 Cloves Minced Garlic (3 tsp pre chopped)
1/2 tsp ground cumin
This is your dressing.

In a larger serving bowl combine:
2 can corn, drained well
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
1 small green bell pepper, diced small
1 small red bell pepper, diced small
3 TBSP Snipped Cilantro (or about 1 TBSP dried Cilantro)
salt and pepper to taste

Pour your dressing over the bean mixture and toss gently to coat evenly.
Chill for at least an hour.

serve alone or with chips or tortillas.
