Meal #1


Southwest Corn, Black Bean Salad


25 mins




3 large ears of corn, husked

⅓ cup pine nuts

¼ cup lime juice

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

½ teaspoon salt

Freshly ground pepper, to taste

2 15-ounce cans black beans, rinsed

1 large tomato, diced

½ cup minced red onion

2 cups shredded red cabbage, (see Tip)


Instructions Checklist

Step 1 Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a Dutch oven. Add corn, cover and cook until just tender, about 3 minutes. When cool enough to handle, cut the kernels from the cobs using a sharp knife.

Step 2 Meanwhile, place pine nuts in a small dry skillet over medium-low heat and cook, stirring, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.
