Key Lime Corn and Black Bean Salad – Recipe #5

photo(71)


Here is salad #5 in my “A Salad For Each Week” series. I used the sweet and sour Florida Key Lime to add flavor to the beans and corn. A bit of healthy fat was added in with some organic coconut oil. (Lime + Coconut = Wonderful!) I turned this into lettuce wraps and served with turkey burgers and caramelized onions. You could add slices of avocado to the wraps or chunk some of them up to add to the salad itself. This also makes a great “salsa” for chicken, fish, or pork.

Key Lime Corn and Black Bean Salad

4 cups organic corn kernels (frozen and thawed or fresh off cob)
1 1/2 cups organic black beans (drained and rinsed if using canned)

2 cups diced fresh tomato
1/3 cup purple onion, diced
2 Tablespoons Coconut oil
1 tablespoon fresh key lime juice (about 2 limes)
1-2 garlic cloves, minced

1/2 teaspoon cumin
Salt and pepper to taste

Place coconut oil, juice, garlic, cumin, and S&P into a bowl and whisk. Add in corn, black beans, tomatoes, and onion and toss to coat. Place in fridge to chill for at least a few hours. Serve in whole romaine leaves, over chicken or pork, or scoop up with tortilla chips. Enjoy!
