Here’s another one that can be prepared as a condiment or can be served as the main dish. I’ve used a tiny amount of sunflower oil for the vinaigrette; just enough to hold it together.
2 cups cooked black beans (1 can, drained and rinsed)
2 large ears roasted corn on the cob
1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and diced
1 medium green bell pepper, seeded and diced
2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and diced
1/2 cup diced Green onion tops and bottom
1 tbspn. Chopped cilantro
1 cup vinaigrette (below)
1 pkg. dry Good Season Zesty Italian dressing mix
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup sunflower oil
1 cup balsamic vinegar
Combine the vinaigrette ingredients in a jar with a tight fitting lid and shake well. Set aside. Rinse and drain the black beans. Cut the corn from the cob. Mix together in a large salad bowl, and add the rest of the vegetables; mixing well. Drizzle the dressing over this and toss lightly.
Once, I used corn left over from a crawfish boil. Mmm, Mmm! It was salty, but soooo good!
