No Sugar Black Bean and Corn Salad

Mary Gelfond


While this recipe contains no sugar, there is a tangy citrus flavor throughout. The flavor of the cilantro is melded nicely. My family had this salad and loved it. Some of my children have cut way back on their sugar intake so this worked out very nicely. It also makes the recipe more acceptable to diabetics. It is one of my "go-to" recipes.

This salad makes a good accompaniment to fish and chicken entrees. It is also good with burgers and sandwiches. It is a great snack or lunch on its own.
