I'm always looking for new salads to try for summer barbecues and family birthdays. Potato salads and pasta salads are always a hit, but I was looking for something new and decided to try this black bean and corn salad from the southwest.

This salad is really easy to prepare. It is also very healthy, much healthier than the potato salad! It has a lot of flavor. Your friends will certainly ask you for the recipe.
whole grain corn
red onion, chopped
red or orange pepper, chopped
lime juice (fresh or bottled)
Drain the black beans and corn. You can just empty all the beans and corn into a colander in the sink to drain them while you chop the onion and peppers.
I love this vegetable chopper to easily cut my peppers and onions for salads and salsas.
In a small bowl, combine the lime juice, honey and cumin.
Place the drained beans and corn in a large serving bowl. Stir in chopped peppers and onions. Stir in cilantro.
