Black beans are a delicious staple of Central and South American cuisine—they fill you up without filling you out. This black bean salad with a decidedly Southwestern flair is quick and easy to make, high in protein and fiber, low in fat and calories, and tasty as all get-out.
  • 2 15-oz. cans black beans, rinsed and drained (or 3 cups freshly cooked black beans)
  • 1-1/2 cups frozen corn, defrosted
  • 1 small red bell pepper, seeds and stem removed, chopped
  • 1 bunch fresh cilantro, finely chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • The juice of 2 medium limes (about 1/4 cup)
Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl and enjoy! Makes 6 servings.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
