This corn salad recipe is a combination of the best characteristics of three recipes, which I guess makes it OUR authentic recipe.
It is refreshing and a perfect complement to any barbecued or grilled entree'. We served this on "Mexican Fiesta" night along with steak and chicken fajitas. To view that recipe and instructional video,
My apologies about the quality of the above picture. I took it with my IPhone before we dug in, and I couldn't get the lighting right.
This delicious salad has sweet corn, black beans, sweet cherry tomatoes and avocado in a Mexican vinaigrette. You will LOVE IT! In fact, our son and a buddy of his ate half of it as a dip with corn chips before we could even set it on the table!
Come to think of it, if you add some diced grilled chicken to this salad, it would make a great lunch.

The Juice of 2 Limes
The Zest of 1 Lime
1/4 Cup of Vegetable Oil
1 Teaspoon of Salt
1/2 Teaspoon of Cumin
1 Teaspoon of Black Pepper
1 Teaspoon of Sugar
1 Teaspoon of Chili Powder (Optional)
Whisk all ingredients above together until smooth and well mixed.
1 15 Ounce Can of Black Beans
1 8.75 Ounce Can of Sweet Corn
1 Avocado, Cubed
1 1/2 Cup of Halved Cherry Tomatoes
1/4 Cup of Chopped Cilantro
Pour dressing over the salad and mix. Best to let sit overnight to allow flavors to fully incorporate, but it is delicious if you have to eat it immediately.
To add additional flavor, grill sweet corn still on the cob and cut the corn off. Will add some nice smokiness.
