Corn & black bean salad

Sweet corn! How sweet it is. I had some dried black beans on hand and (after soaking and cooking them on Thursday), tossed this up last night. All the veggies I used were from my CSA share, except the jalapeno I picked fresh from my container garden(!) I usually finish this off with some chopped cilantro but didn't have any on hand. Chopped bell peppers are a nice addition, too. Happy August!

6 ears fresh corn
2-3 cups cooked black beans (1 can drained & rinsed is fine)
few handfuls cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered
1 jalapeno, diced
1 bunch scallions (and/or some diced onion)
juice of 2-3 limes
1 tbsp cumin
salt & pepper, to taste
(optional) chopped avocado, if you want to get really serious

Cut corn (raw) off of cobs. Toss all ingredients in a large bowl and enjoy. This is especially delicious after it marinates in the fridge for a few hours or overnight. Delicious the next day for lunch!
