Corn and Black Bean Salad

Easy and wonderful side dish recipe which I keep handy, because it makes everyone happy whenever it is served:) because the amounts used are just right. If you follow the recipe you will see what I mean.

The only thing I add is tomatoes, I like the moisture it brings to the salad.

Roast the corn before adding to the salad. In a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, roast corn; cooking 8 minutes or until browned, stirring occasionally. It's just as simple as that.

Enjoy:)
