Looks good, FF! What did you use for dressing?

1/2 cup olive oil (that's way too much...1/4 c is plenty)
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon salt (optional)
1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper (I leave this out and sub 1/2 tsp cumin instead, IMO, this salad screams for cumin)
2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 cups frozen corn kernels
1 avocado - peeled, pitted and diced (or two!)
1 red bell pepper, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
6 green onions, thinly sliced (I use chopped red onion)
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro (that might be too much for some, but I love cilantro)

Place lime juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, and cayenne (or use the subbed cumin) in a small jar. Cover with lid, and shake until ingredients are well mixed.

In a salad bowl, combine beans, corn, avocado*, bell pepper, tomatoes, onions, and cilantro. Shake lime dressing, and pour it over the salad. Stir salad to coat vegetables and beans with dressing, and serve.
********
It's better if it sits for a bit before serving, but not necessary.

*Mix avocados in last, and gently stir in so they don't get all broken up. They'll stay nice and green with the lime juice dressing.

My step-daughter introduced a similar recipe to me but ours is called Corn and Black Bean Salsa. One time I made it I found a can of corn that had some heat, I think it was called Mexican Corn, and that eliminated the need for cayenne or jalapeno, and we use red onion. We eat it with Scoops. Just scoop up a bunch of it into the shell.

Yes, please do share your recipe, andylewis. If you start a new thread for it, it will be easier to find rather than getting lost in this one. And welcome to DC!

edit: If the recipe is from another source, please remember to credit the source. ;-)

I don't know how I missed this until today Carol, but using Fritos scoops with it sounds delicious!
