Ingredients

2 medium
tomatoes, diced and drained
1 can(s)
black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can(s)
mexicorn, drained
1/4 c
red onion, chopped
1-2 tsp
dried basil, crushed
1 1/2 Tbsp
oil
1 1/2 Tbsp
white balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp
honey
1/2 Tbsp
dijon mustard
1/4 tsp
salt

Step-By-Step

1In a medium serving bowl, add the tomatoes, onion, corn and beans.

2In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, salt, honey and Dijon mustard. Pour the dressing over the veggies. Toss to coat. Chill the salad for a minimum of one hour.

3Just before serving, crush the basil between your fingers to release the oils and sprinkle over the salad.

4Variations:
If you like a zestier dressing, you can add 1/4 tsp. chili powder to the mix. Or a pinch of cumin.

Cheater's version: Use the dressing on a can of Southwestern corn mix. Don't forget the basil, but reduce it to 1/2 tsp.
