The best bean & corn salad

GDI - bean dip

My girlfriend Noreen and her husband always bring this killer black bean & corn salad to neighborhood get togethers. It's best when eaten with these salt & lime tortilla chips, but if you're trying to be a bit healthier it's amazing all by itself. I'm sure you could find a more exact recipe somewhere online, but this is the gist that I use:

1 can black beans, drained

1 can sweet corn

1 chopped green, red or yellow pepper

2 - 3 Tablespoons chopped onion (again, you can use more or less of all of these depending on your tastebuds & available ingredients)

1 teaspoon cumin

salt & pepper to taste

1 tablespoon olive oil 

salsa to taste 

fresh lemon/lime juice to taste

I've honestly omitted the olive oil & salsa before, and it's still super yummy. It also fits in with almost everyone's diet, so it's great for big gatherings. 

(PS - I've found if I keep things like hummus, chopped vegetables, olive tapenade & cold salads in the fridge it's so much easier to eat vegetables all day)
