Black Bean Confetti Salad

Black Bean Confetti Salad

Introduction

This recipe is adapted from one found on www.smittenkitchen.com. Makes 8 servings of 1 cup each. The ingredients are approximate, there is no need to be precise with this. Pretty much just add everything to taste! (This is also great as a salsa like dip for light tostito chips!) For more visual effect, use 1 green pepper and 1 each of red, orange, and yellow.

  • I make this without the lime juice and olive oil, and add 5 or 6 Roma tomatos chopped (or one can of petite diced tomatos, drained). I don't cook the corn, either. Use a can drained or thaw a package of frozen and add it in. - 1/28/11
