Black Bean and Corn Salad

In trying to eat healthier I have been trying to incorporate beans into our diet more. I have been playing with cooking my own beans – like my earlier recipe for cooked black beans. I have also made my own homemade re-fried beans! This recipe for black bean and corn salad came from one of my bean soaked weekends earlier this fall. I happened to have pre-soaked black beans on hand. We were having tacos that night and I wanted a salad to go along with dinner but was not in the mood for another green salad. Thus a new recipe was born.
