(WTNH) -- Corn is in peak season and it's the perfect time to create a fresh corn and black bean salad.
Fresh Corn and Black Bean Salad
- 6 medium size ears fresh corn, boiled or roasted (about 4 1/2 cups)
- 2 12 ounce cans black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped coarsely
- 1/2 yellow bell pepper, seeded and chopped coarsely
- 1/2 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped coarsely
- 1 scallion, sliced
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
- Juice of 2 lemons (or limes or one of each)
- Sea salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
Slice the corn kernels off the cobs into a large mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and toss to mix. Season to taste with sea salt and pepper.
Note: If you like heat, substitute minced jalapeno peppers for the scallion, or add some of your favorite hot sauce for a kick. You can also add chopped cilantro for extra flavor.
