Mexican Salad With Lime Dressing
Recipe type: Dinner
  • For Dressing:
  • 2 tbsp. cilantro, chopped
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 3 tbsp. lime juice (preferably fresh)
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • a dash of crushed red pepper
  • salt, to taste
  • For Salad:
  • 1½ cups black beans (or one 15 oz. can, rinsed)
  • 1½ cups garbanzo beans (or one 15 oz. can, rinsed)
  • 1½ cups frozen corn
  • ½ red onion, diced (see note)
  • 1 red, yellow, or orange bell pepper, diced
  • 1 cup fresh diced tomatoes (about 2 small tomatoes)
  1. Combine all dressing ingredients in a small bowl and whisk thoroughly. Then, in a separate medium bowl, combine both beans, corn, onion, pepper, and tomatoes. Pour dressing over the salad and stir to incorporate. If possible, refrigerate salad for about half an hour to let flavors blend, though your dinner will be just fine if you eat it immediately.
