1 15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 cups cooked, chilled white rice ( I used the ready made Uncle Ben's pouch and it was the perfect amount)
1 cup frozen corn
1 small sweet red pepper, finely diced
1 small red onion, peeled and finely diced
1/2 cup chopped cilantro or parsley (use the cilantro!!)
1/2 cup olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin ( I usually up it to 1 tsp, since cumin rocks my world)
Salt and pepper to taste
Combine the beans, rice, corn, red pepper, onion and cilantro in a large bowl/bag, toss well.
Combine the olive oil vinegar, garlic jalapeno pepper and cumin, add to the rice mixture and toss well. Taste and add salt and pepper accordingly. Serve chilled.
I love the colors in this salad
My chopping skills are getting better
The salad is dressed and ready to go into the refrigerator
Paired with Mahi Mahi, delish!
