Corn, Black Bean and Tomato Salad

Corn, Black Bean and Tomato Salad

Fiona Haynes
Use whatever type of corn is convenient. Four ears of grilled corn will do the trick here, and be more flavorful. But if time is short, you could use frozen or canned sweet corn instead.

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 15 minutes


  • 2 cups corn kernels (about four ears of grilled corn, or use frozen or canned)
  • 2 cups less-sodium black beans
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
  • Jalapeno or Serrano pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Juice of 1 large lime
  • 1 tsp cumin


Combine corn, black beans, tomatoes, jalapeno/serrano chile pepper and cilantro in a medium bowl. Whisk oil, lime juice and cumin together. Drizzle over salad and toss until coated.

Serves 6.

Worth searching for ...again and again, Member zfouant

Aaaack! I keep forgetting to bookmark and/or copy this recipe somewhere - finally I have done so. I have made this recipe three times so far and everyone, including me, loves it! I know there are variations and maybe I'll even try them, but this recipe is the bomb and I never want to have to search (and search and search) again - though it is worth the trip. Quick, easy and delicious.
