Southwestern Corn & Black Bean Salad

February/March 2006, The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006)

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (170 votes)

Here's a great make-ahead dinner--and leftovers are welcome for lunch the next day. If you make it ahead, don't add the salt and pepper until just before serving. That way, the salt won't render the vegetables soggy and the pepper won't lose its bite. Make It a Meal: Scoop up this salad with warm corn tortillas.

Excellent quick, healthy meal

I thought this was great. Even my husband enjoyed it, though this is not the type of food he usually likes (in his words, when he first saw it he thought he'd spit it out, but instead he ate a whole bowl). I served it with homemade flour tortillas and an extra squeeze of lime. Yum!

I couldn't find pine nuts either. I used roasted salted pepitas I found at the supermarket, and just omitted the added salt from the recipe to compensate. It was really tasty!

I use hemp seeds. My organic grocer recommended them as replacements since they're cheaper, healthier and are grown locally. They have a similar taste and consistency, even if they are smaller.

This was delicious! I did add ground cumin and a little more salt. The cumin works well with the roasted pine nuts. Great for lunch the next day. Will definitely make again.

This salad is as beautiful as it is delicious. We have learned to squeeze the lime juice over it just before we dig in for extra zing.
