Another Great Summer Salad!

1 Jun

Here’s great salad recipe that is not just yummy but healthy and gluten free!  It ‘s another one of those that I am asked to make again and again….it goes really well with just about anything- burgers, steak, chicken or even grilled shrimp. My husband actually likes to put it in a tortilla and eat it like a burrito, I prefer it naked- it’s too pretty to cover up.

Colorful Black Bean Salad!

It is an Emeril Lagasse recipe that he calls a Black Bean Relish, I prefer-


4 Cups Cooked Black Beans, rinsed and drained

2 Cups Cooked Corn Kernels, cut from the cob

1 Red Bell Pepper, finely chopped

2 Large Cloves Garlic, minced

2 Jalapeno Peppers, seeded and finley minced (I use only 1)

1/2 Bunch Scallions, finely sliced

1/4 Cup Cilantro Leaves, chopped

2 Limes, juiced

1/2 Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Salt and Pepper

In a bowl combine all of the ingredients and stir to mix well.  Season to taste with salt and pepper and set aside to let side for at least 1/2 hour before serving. ENJOY!
