Project 240: Black Bean Fiesta Salad

Here is a delicious and healthy celebratory dish to mark Cinco de Mayo. The colors will remind you of a festive pinata. The flavor will take you south of the border (for me that means Oregon but you get the idea). It's quick and easy and healthy and you'll want to eat all of it.

2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup corn
1 small red bell pepper diced
1/2 - 1 zucchini diced
1/2 large jalapeno, diced (seeded and de-veined for less heat)
1/4 large white onion, diced
juice of one lime
3 cloves roasted garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cumin
handful of cilantro, chopped

Just combine all ingredients in a large bowl and you're ready to eat. However, this salad will taste even better if you let it chill for a couple of hours. Tomorrow it will taste better yet.
