RAVE Diet Whole Foods Recipe #10- Black Bean & Corn Salad


Black Bean & Corn Salad

Let me introduce you to what is probably my favorite RAVE dish yet!  This tasty salad was not only wonderful on it’s own, but when my husband mixed the leftovers with baby spinach and his own special dressing  the next day, it had a second life!  I rated Black Bean & Corn Salad a whopping 9 and my husband rated it an 8!

Here’s the recipe:

  • 3 cups dry black beans (you have to cook them first, of course)
  • 2 cups frozen corn kernels, thawed
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, minced
  • 1 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onions
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1-2 T juice from 1 lime
  • 1 T vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp minced garlic

Combine first seven ingredients in a large bowl.  Make dressing with lime juice, cilantro, garlic, pepper, and vegetable broth.  Combine well (I put all the ingredients in a small Tupperware container with a very tight seal and then shake the heck out of it!).  Pour over salad ingredients and toss lightly to combine.  Chill several hours before serving (I served it pretty much right away because I’m an impatient sort of eater, but it was really good the next day as well!)
