Black Bean, Corn & Jicama Salad

Black Bean, Corn & Jicama Salad

Black beans, rinsed and drained

Fresh corn kernels or frozen corn, thawed
Jicama, chopped
Cherry tomatoes, halved
Scallions, chopped
Basil, chiffonade or chopped

Lime juice
Olive oil
Salt & Pepper

Use proportions of the first six ingredients (black beans through basil) that your family will enjoy. Mix together in a big bowl, and add fresh lime juice and olive oil and salt and pepper, to taste.

The colors get a little less vibrant, but the flavors meld if it last a few days in your fridge. Great served with grilled fish, chicken, or can become a Mexican Shrimp Salad with the addition of some greens, grilled shrimp, and a drizzle of a little more lime vinaigrette...
