BLACK BEAN AND TOMATO MEDLEY

black-bean-and-tomato-medley-2

     A delicious quick salad perfect as a side dish with a BBQ dinner, or to take to a pot luck or picnic since it doesn’t have to be kept cold.  No mayo or meat, so perfect take-along dish for any occasion.  Very low cal, but highly nutritious.  High in protein, Vitamins, Antioxidants, and more. 

     This salad is  similar to the one I make with Avocado and Tomato and what inspired me to make this.  I had tomatoes just begging for me to yank them off the vine, and I’ve been running out of ideas to use them up.  The differences in this salad is that I used halved cherry tomatoes, red onion,  black beans, fresh corn, and Sriracha sauce for the heat.  OK, maybe it’s barely similar to my Avocado, Tomato salad.  Since I don’t care so much for Avocado, this is tastier, in my opinion.  And it’s just as fast.  5-10 minutes, including picking the maters.  

INGREDIENTS:

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

1 ear of corn, cooked and cut off cob (or frozen)

About a dozen cherry tomatoes (or cut a large tomato into chunks)

¼ cup chopped red onion

1 tsp minced garlic

½ – ¾ cup chopped bell peppers or mini sweet peppers

2-3 TBSP olive oil

¼ tsp sugar

Juice of one lemon or one lime

Sriracha sauce to taste

Salt and pepper

1 tsp dried Cumin OR Cilantro

PREPARATION:

In medium bowl, mix beans, corn, tomatoes, red onion, garlic, and peppers.  Add olive oil, sugar, citrus juice, Sriacha, salt, pepper, and either Cumin or Cilantro.  Give it a good stir and chill for a minimum of an hour.  This dish tastes better after it sits for a while.
