Food Column ATK Southwestern Black Bean Salad

Southwestern Black Bean Salad. This recipe appears in “The Complete Diabetes Cookbook.”

For an easy, light, summertime bean salad, we combined fiber-rich black beans with fresh corn, bright tomato and creamy avocado.

Toasting the corn in a skillet until golden brown brought out its natural sweetness. Chipotle chile, cilantro, and lime juice provided the perfect Southwestern flavor profile to this easy-to-prepare salad. Fresh corn is important for the flavor of the salad_don’t substitute frozen or canned corn.
