Black Bean and Corn Salad

This is a crunchy, fresh, great tasting side dish that I had kind of forgotten about.  Sweet but with a kick…try it.  Make it as a side dish with grilled chicken or fish, or serve it as a main dish!  Temps are still getting up warm and this summer salad shouldn’t be passed up!  Enjoy!
