Saute' frozen corn in a heavy skillet until dry.

While cooking corn, rinse black beans very lightly by dunking them into a large bowl of water, then drain in colander.

Dice cherry tomatoes into about 4 pieces each. Place them in a large mixing bowl and spray vigorously with water. Work tomato pieces with your fingers quite a bit back and forth to get rid of the seeds. Rinse and repeat until seeds are gone. Drain well.

Halve avocado and remove pit. Cube avocado into 1/2 inch pieces.

Ingredients for Dressing:

Dice red onion.
Chop cilantro.
Squeeze lime juice.

Place olive oil, lime juice, red onion, cilantro, garlic
cumin, salt, & pepper into small food processor. Puree it a moment. Pour dressing over corn, tomatoes, beans, and avocado. Mix well, but softly. Yum, Yum!

  • Trying to get my family to eat more vegetables and this was a great side to turkey burgers last night. Everyone loved it. - 6/30/11

  • I used only 1 can of black beans and roma tomatoes instead of grape tomatoes, since that's all I had. Still came out delicious. I will be making this again. Paired it with grilled salmon and yellow rice. - 8/1/10
