I am addicted to this salad....
No joke. I make it almost every week, and eat it throughout the week in 1, or 2 cup measured out portions. People keep asking me for the recipe, so I am posting it here:
2 cans of black beans - rinsed
2 cans of corn - rinsed
1 cup of chopped pepper - whatever colour you like, and I usually do 3 whole peppers, but that's just me because the original recipe calls for onions and tomatoes, which I hate.
1/2 cup grape tomatoes
1/2 cup chopped basil (I cheat and buy the squeeze tube of basil from the grocery store - add 2 tablespoons or so)
1/2 cup feta cheese - Ummmmmm...whoever adds only 1/2 cup of Feta ain't no friend of mine. I always add a lil' extra.
1/2 cup olive oil
3 tablespoons of white wine vinegar - I usually add a wee bit extra, cause I love it.
1 teaspoon mustard - recipe calls for Dijon, which I hate, so I use regular
Mix the salad portion together, make the dressing, add, stir. Add salt and pepper to taste.
I have started adding a little bit of carrot, to try it out, and will also try celery soon, too... I also add some extra spices, like maybe paprika, or chipotle - just for extra flavour.
