Black Bean Cucumber Salad

Submitted by: A1CMOM

Introduction

I came up with this recipe because I like black bean/corn salsa, but most are high in calories, this recipe thins it out by adding lots of healthy vegetables. Very good with grilled fish.

  • this was very good, I didn't have any cucumber and I used red kidney instead of black beans. - 5/24/12

  • I made this more flavorful, adding mint, lemon and cumin. I also took out the corn and served it alongside corn and the cob instead. And I added an extra cucumber. Yum! Here's a link to my version: http://noshesthoughtsreves.blogspot.com/20
