I had leftover corn, black bean salad, but not quite enough for a side.  I cooked brown rice in the crock pot over night and mixed it in to make a yummy salad.

Corn and Black Bean Salad:

1 1/2 c. roasted corn

1 can great northern beans, rinsed and drained

1 can black beans, rinsed and drained

1/2 c finely chopped sweet onion

Dressing:

  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice, from 1-2 limes
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 large garlic clove, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 3/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tsp. chopped jalapeno pepper

 

Combine corn, beans and onion.  Toss with dressing.  Refrigerate at least overnight.

In the morning, stir in the cooked brown rice.  Refrigerate for the day.

I served this with some chicken and a salad bar.

1 can Bush’s Texas Ranchero beans

4 c. leftover pulled pork

1 jar salsa (I used Sage Valley organic medium salsa)

1 can whole kernel corn

1 can great northern beans

Combine and cook in the crock pot 4-6 hours on low or 2-3 on high.

Serve topped with chips or broken up tostadas, shredded cheese and sour cream.

Place in bowl next to a salad of a variety of fresh greens, cucumber, red pepper, mushrooms, and avocado splashed with a little balsamic vinaigrette.

Everyone raved, even though this was a combination of semi-homemade ingredients and leftovers.  The salad really took it over the top!
