Black Bean Salad

This is one of my favorite quick meal ideas! You can use this recipe as a salad or as a filling for pitas or tortillas. This is also a good base recipe that allows you to add or take away a lot of things. We felt like this salad was a light and tasty summer type recipe. We got this off of our Bush's BEST Black Beans can. There website is a great resource for some great recipes that include beans.

Black Bean Salad

1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
2 (15 ounce) cans whole kernel corn, drained
8 green onions, chopped
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 avocado - peeled, pitted, and diced
1 (4 ounce) jar pimentos
3 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 lime, juiced
1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
-Optional Add Ins-
Raspberry vinaigrette instead of Italian
Kidney Beans
Colored Bell Peppers
Cherry Tomatoes, sliced

In a large bowl, combine the black beans, corn, green onions, jalapeno peppers, bell pepper, avocado, pimentos, tomatoes, cilantro, lime juice, and Italian dressing. Season with garlic salt. Toss, and chill until serving.
