Going to a summer’s end picnic or BBQ? Here’s a great salad to bring — colorful and full of flavor! White corn adds a touch of natural sweetness and complements the Mexican Vinaigrette. Delicious!!!

1 ½ cups bells peppers, diced (red, orange and green)
1 medium tomato, diced
¾ cup red onion, diced small
2 cups white corn, fresh or frozen

Dressing:
¼ cup cilantro, minced
½ cup olive oil
4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sea salt
½ teaspoon pepper
½ teaspoon chili powder
½ teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon granulated onion
½ teaspoon granulated garlic

  • Defrost corn or cut corn off of fresh husks.
  • Combine ingredients in bowl. Add dressing and toss to coat.
  • Serve immediately or marinate overnight. It’s yummy either way!!

This looks really good--I do believe I have some black beans in the pantry that I can cook. Will have to make this for lunch! Thanks for the article.
