This is the perfect summer side. It's super-easy, low-fat and can be made with stuff that's probably already in your pantry/fridge. Trust me -- this is fantastic with some barbecue ... hmmmm, barbecue ...
2 cups corn kernels
1 diced red bell pepper
1/2 cup thinly sliced green onions
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1, 15-oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tsp sugar
2 tsp olive oil
1/2 tsp each of garlic powder, cumin, chili powder and black pepper
Dash of salt
Combine corn, bell pepper, onions, cilantro, and beans for a medium bowl.
Combine vinegar and remaining ingredients in a small bowl. Drizzle vinegar mixture over corn mixture, toss well. Cover and chill for 30 minutes.
I usually make this a day ahead and it's just perfect. It's also delish with some tortilla chips. Enjoy!
