Mexican Black Bean and Corn Salad

Deni Elwood


This a really easy dish. I first tasted it at my son's wedding reception. He and his fiancé had planned the wedding and reception at a wonderful house in Santa Barbara, Ca. When the families arrived the day before the wedding, they gave each of us a list of 'chores' to help them get everything ready. One of my chores was to make this salad for the reception. Of course the portions were much larger I've brought those down for a dinner side dish. Many people who have had this at my house have also used it as a dip for corn chips. I hope you enjoy it!
