Impress Your Friends & Family

The Farmer's Markets are open, and the vegetables are calling.  This recipe is courtesy of our Friends president, Brian Jacoby, and is absolutely delicious.  Since it is the season of fresh vegies, you can certainly use FRESH corn kernels instead of frozen!

From the Cooks' & Hash-Slingers' Guide to Great Grub,  this is SO yummy and the flavors just improve with age (if you have leftovers).  Take this to a neighborhood event and you'll be VERY popular!

1/3 cup fresh lime juice (2-3 limes)
1/3 cup olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp ground cayenne
2 15-oz cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 c. frozen corn kernels
1 avocado, peeled, pitted, diced
1 red bell pepper, chopped
2 tomatoes, chopped
6 green onions, sliced thin
1/2 c. chopped fresh cilantro

Place the first 5 ingredients in a jar and shake until the ingredients are well mixed.

In a large salad bowl, mix all the other ingredients.  Shake the dressing once more and pour over salad ingredients.  Stir to thoroughly coat the salad and serve.  Store leftovers in fridge.
