Salad-Mexican Black Bean and Corn Salad

Food, FoOD, FOOD, that is what I think about. Just posting another Mexican recipe in the spirit of Cinco de Mayo today. This Mexican Black Bean and Corn Salad claims only to have 117 calories per serving. It was also in my newspaper.

2 cans (15 ounce)black soybeans, drained and rinsed
2 cups frozen corn kernels, thawed
1 large red pepper, chopped
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1 cup chopped green onions
1 jalapeno pepper, minced
2 tomatoes, chopped
2/3 cup chopped cliantro, optional
Juice from 2 limes (about 1/4 cup)
1 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
1 1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon soybean oil
Combine the first 8 ingredients in a large bowl. Make dressing with lime juice, garlic, cumin, salt and soybean oil; combine well. Pour over salad ingredients and toss lightly to combine. Chill several hours before serving. This makes about 8 cups with 117 calories per serving.
