  • 1 cup Green Bell Pepper
  • 6 Green Onions

In This Recipe


  1. Drain Black Beans in a mesh sieve. Move them ever so gently for trapped liquid to drain. I use a rubber spatula and use a folding motion.
  2. Chopped the celery, green pepper, set aside.
  3. Remove corn from cob. *Frozen corn can be used about a cup and a half.
  4. Slice the green onions into 1/4" pieces using all of the onion except the green stems.
  5. Place all the ingredients for the dressing in a jar with a lid, including the lime juice and shake to mix thoroughly.
  6. Place the beans, peppers, celery, corn, onion into a serving bowl.
  7. Right before serving, drizzle the dressing along the sides of the bowl and gently mix until everything is coated.
  8. Salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Serve at room temperature.
