Corn and Black Bean Salad — I have been making this salad for many many years and it is always a big hit at family and social gatherings. Over the years I have asked for the recipe numerous times. Of course, I am always happy to share it!

This is a colorful and fun salad which is great for lunch, as an appetizer or for a picnic. It is very easy to make and can be made a day ahead because it is best served completely chilled. But if adding avocado, wait to add it prior to serving, otherwise it will discolour if left sitting.

 2 cans whole kernel corn (drained) or 3 cups fresh cooked corn
 1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
 3 tbsp chopped sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil
 ½ diced red bell pepper
 ½ diced green, yellow or orange bell pepper
 ½ diced medium red onion
 ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
 ¼ cup crumbled feta cheese
 1 firm avocado sliced (optional)
 Dressing 2Tbs olive, grape seed or avocado oil 2 limes, juiced ¼ tsp cayenne, or ½ tsp chilli powder and a few dashes of Tobasco ½ tsp ground cumin ½ tsp sea salt
1

Combine corn, black beans, peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, onion and cilantro in a salad bowl.

2

In a small bowl whisk together all dressing ingredients. Pour over salad and mix well. Garnish with crumbled feta cheese and sliced avocado.

3

Chill until ready to serve.
