So...I had a can of black beans and some frozen corn on the cob...what to do for a side salad for the hubby who was going to have a chicken/onion and cheese

1 can of black beans
1 blanched frozen corn on the cob (kernels cut off)
1 roasted red pepper charred peeled and chopped (or use jarred)
1/2 a red onion finely diced
about a 1/4 cup of cilantro chopped (or to taste)
4 cloves of garlic finely minced
1 whole jalapeno finely minced
olive oil
splash and a half of red wine vinegar
lemon and lime juice to taste..(i like more lime than lemon)
Salt and pepper generously
Add some chili powder if you wish

Mix all together and let the flavors marry..IE...let sit for at least 2 hours and taste...I had to adjust the acids but my lord this was good for on the fly with stuff we had in the house..give it a try and make it your own...add delete...whatever...
