Black Bean and Corn Salad
When I think of a delicious chilled summer salad, I think of this recipe.  It’s a refreshing combination of crunchy, juicy, and healthy.  It originates from allrecipes.com’s Black Bean and Corn Salad II and I modified it based the reviewers’ comments.  One of my most requested recipes of all time!
