black bean and corn salad

I got this recipe from John's aunt Mary Ann and I've already made it twice this summer and had many compliments. Hope you enjoy, it's wonderful!

Black Bean and Corn Salad
  • 3 limes (lime juice)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (or my version, 3 cloves)
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen corn kernels (or 4 ears)
  • 2 (15 oz.) cans black beans
  • 1 avocado peeled, diced
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 6 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
1. Place lime juice, olive oil, garlic, salt and cayenne pepper in a small jar. Cover with lide and shake it until mixed well.
2. In a salad bowl, combine everything else. Shake dressing and pour over salad. Stir salad to coat veggies and beans with dressing.
