Simple Chilled Bean & Salsa Salad
- 1 can black beans (drained and rinsed)
- 2 ears of roasted corn (cut off of cob)
- ⅓ cup chopped cilantro
- 2 heaping Tbsp La Fundidora Humo Salsa
- juice of 1 lime
- pinch of salt & pepper to taste
Lightly toss all ingredients in a large bowl and allow to sit in refrigerator to thoroughly combine all flavors.
NOTE: Fire roasted corn is best. The blacker it gets, the better. That means that all of the natural sugars in the corn have caramelized and are sweeter, providing a nice contrast to the smokey salsa and acid of lime juice. We roasted our ears of corn in a grill pan on the stove, but this could also be done on a grill.
