Bean Salad

I've disappeared recently, mainly due to my laptop getting infected with a virus. Make that a virus that downloaded 51 other viruses. Yeah, fantastic. Now that I got my computer back, I have spent a ton of time on it. So much for me breaking my addiction to the internet. Does anyone really need to check their email at least 5 times an hour?

Here's a very simple recipe that goes over very well with crowds!

1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can white beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup frozen corn
1 small red pepper, seeded and chopped
1 small green pepper, seeded and chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon hot sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine all the ingredients and let stand for about an hour to defrost.


  1. Sounds yummy! I'll have to try this salad. I haven't found a version of corn & bean salad that we really like. Anna

  2. Hi Anna! It took me a while to find one I liked, but this one has a little kick because of the cumin and hot sauce. (I can't handle too much hotness, so add the hot sauce liberally if you're braver than I am!)
