A Great *Lunch* Idea

Here is one of my favorite - quick and easy - lunch salads, thought it would be fun to share!

Thai Corn Black Bean Salad
  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • 1 can (16 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup celery
  • 1/2 cup diced red pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 jalepeno chili peppers, seeded and minced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger root (can use dried instead)
  • 3 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • salt to taste

Combine all veggies and beans in a bowl. Whisk sesame oil with vinegar and lime juice in a small bowl. Toss it with the beans and veggies. Makes 4 - 6 servings. I recommend doubling it so that you can take it with you for lunch several times during the week!
