Honey Cilantro Black Bean Salad
My husband has been making this black bean salad recipe for us for years. Its a perfect addition to any outdoor barbecue, picnic, or even just a fresh dinner at home. It has a great fresh crisp somewhat text mex flavor to it. There is no cooking involved, just a little washing and chopping. Go ahead and try this easy healthful salad out tonight.
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
2 ears of fresh corn, removed from cob
1/4 cup bell pepper, diced to about 1/2 the size of one black bean
1/4 cup red onion, diced to 1/4 the size of one black bean
2 roma tomatoes, diced to about 1/2 the size of one black bean
1/4 cup pineapple tidbits, chopped in half
1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
3 tablespoons lavender honey
4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
juice from 1/2 of a lime
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tablespoon lavender salt
1 tsp fresh ground pepper
Chop ingredients as directed above, mix together. Eat.
One thing I love about this recipe is that if you have some left over, if its left to sit overnight the flavors are even better the next day! So if you ever need a great make ahead dish, this is a real winner.
