Sharon's Salad

We love black beans and salsa so this sounded like it’d be a winner.  We went over to a friend’s house to swim and visit so what a great opportunity to make something new!  This was great!  We ate it as an appetizer with chips but it could just as easily be a side dish to a meal.  It made a lot and yes, we ate nearly all of it.  We can be piggies when something is good and this fit the bill.  

I didn’t make any changes.  It was easy to make it just took a bit longer than expected because of all the chopping.  Oh, we let it marinade overnight.  I would say that the avocados and tomatoes at the end are optional.  Yes, they are good in it but it was just as good without them too.

Recipe taken form – Wish Cookbook*

2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
2 c frozen kernel corn
½ c cilantro chopped
½ c picante sauce
1 large red bell pepper, diced small
1 large red onion, diced small

Juice of one lime
¾ c Italian dressing
2 cloves garlic minced

Mix dressing and toss with other ingredients and chill for several hours.  Add just before serving 1 large tomato chopped and 2 avocados.
