Black Bean Salad
This absolutely delicious recipe comes from a good friend of ours and continues the Latin Amercan theme. Our friend lived in Chile for a number of years and this receipe comes to you, dear gentle readers, from her via there.
This is a great side dish to serve at a BBQ.
You will need:
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon of orange zest
1 teaspoon of lime zest
60ml fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons white-wine vinegar
½ teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes
A splash or two of tabasco sauce
350g black beans, soak overnight, rinse, cook and drained, you can also use chickpeas or any type of bean
1 red bell pepper, finely diced
Big handful of fresh coriander sprigs, washed well, spun dry, and finely chopped
Big handful of parsley, finely chopped
300g of corn, ideally roasted on the bbq and kernals removed from cob
And then the hard part
Put all of the ingredients together in a bowl, toss well and leave in the fridge to rest and cool before serving.
