Black Bean and Corn Salad

Vegan Recipes

IMG_6564

Yum, yum, yum!  This is a Tex Mex salad that can be served as an entrée.  I like bringing it to group BBQ because its healthy, filling and vegan. And if I bring it there will be at least one vegan dish that I can eat. This simple recipe only calls for the corn cooking in the microwave several minutes.  Other than that everything else is raw and easy to assemble.

Ingredients:

  • 4 ears of corn, Kernels cut off the cob
  • 2 cans (1 lb. 13 oz.) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 bell pepper chopped (red, orange, yellow or green)
  • 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 avocados chopped
  • 1 shallot chopped

For the Dressing:

  • 4 limes juiced
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Combine all ingredients, except dressing in a large bowl
  2. Put all the dressing ingredients in a jar so you can shake and add later if you are bringing it to a gathering
  3. Shake dressing and combine with other salad ingredients

ENJOY!
