There were so many yummy things lying around our kitchen that I was able to whip up this

yummy  and easy summer salad!

2  cups rice, cooked and chilled

1 tomato, chopped

1 o, chopped

1/2 – 1 (depending on your love of onion) red onion, diced

1 cup corn (frozen works best for me)

1 can (15 oz.) black beans, drained and rinsed

about a 1/2 cup chopped cilantro

1/4 cup olive oil

4 tablespoons lime juice

1 tsp. ground cumin

1 tsp. sugar

1 clove garlic, crushed and minced

salt and pepper to taste

In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice, cumin, sugar, garlic, salt and pepper.

In a large bowl mix together the rest of your ingredients

Combine!  Mixing with your hands works best!

Serve with tortilla chips for a quick and easy dinner, use as a garnish on grilled chicken breasts, etc etc etc ….

Ren approved
