Pinterest Party & Link-up (Vol 26): Southwestern Black Bean and Corn Salad

Welcome to the RoL Pinterest Party. Join me every 1st Tuesday of the month as we link up and share how we made, cooked, baked, crafted, planned, organized, followed or created one of the pins on our Pinterest boards OR share something original that others can pin onto their boards.

Not on Pinterest? No problem. Link-up your own creation to inspire us so we can pin in to our own boards. It can be a recipe, sewing project, Catholic craft, homeschool project, organizing/ homemaking tip, themed birthday party, whatever you’d like.

Don’t have a post ready? The link-up will be open for a month so there’s still time. Plus, feel free to link up a new post or an older post that hasn’t had much traffic lately. πŸ™‚

I tried this recipe at the beginning of summer and we liked it so much that we have had it countless times since. It is theΒ  Southwestern Black Bean Salad from Skinny Taste.com. I changed it a little to suit our taste.

Ingredients

  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3-4 fresh corn cobs, cooked and kernels removed.
  • 1 handful of cherry tomatoes, halved (or 1 regular tomato, diced)*
  • 1/2 medium red onion, chopped
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 bunch of fresh cilantro, stems removed and chopped
  • dash or two of garlic powder
  • salt and fresh pepper to taste
  • (optional) 1 hass avocado, diced to top each serving**
  • (optional) For a spicy dish, add 1 diced jalapeno

Directions

In a large bowl, combine all your ingredients. Stir well. Let sit in the fridge for 20 – 30 minutes before serving.

* If you use cherry tomatoes, you can dice them or simply cut them in half. To remove the excess juice I use a trick I learned from Bobby Flay. After cutting the tomatoes, please them in a colander with a few dashes of salt. Give them a few shakes and let sit for 10-15 minutes. In the meantime, prepare the rest of your ingredients.

** The original recipe has you mix the avocado in the bowl before serving, which is fine if there are no leftovers. Otherwise the avocado gets brown and mushy, even with the lime. When I use avocado I simply add some on top of each serving. The recipe is also tasty without it all together.

However you put it together, the results are the same. Delicious!
