  • 3 cups fresh corn kernels or 1 (16 ounce) package frozen whole kernel corn
  • 3 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or salad oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano or 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained

  • 2 medium fresh jalapeño chile peppers, seeded and cut into thin, bite-size strips (see Tip)
  • 4 scallions, chopped


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Combine corn and just enough water to cover in a small saucepan. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 3 minutes; drain well.
  2. Whisk together red-wine vinegar, oil, oregano, salt, and ground pepper in a large bowl. Add corn, black beans, bell peppers, chile peppers, and scallions; toss to coat. Cover and chill for 2 to 24 hours.
  • Tip: Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
