Pinto, Black & Red Bean Salad with Grilled Corn & Avocado from Cooking Light

Pinto, Black & Red Bean Salad with Grilled Corn & Avocado from Cooking Light

Chef Julian Medina says: "When I was growing up in Mexico City, my parents would throw wonderful summer barbecues. We would grill corn on the cob and mix in leftover beans & make a delicious, simple corn & bean salad." This Latin-accented three-bean & corn salad is studded with guacamole components; jalapeno, cilantro, white onion, lime & avocado.

  • Yield: 12 servings ( Serving Size: 2/3 cup )

Ingredients

  • 1 cup(s) heirloom grape or cherry tomatoes halved
  • 1 teaspoon(s) salt divided
  • 3 ear(s) shucked corn
  • 1 medium white onion cut into 1/4" thick slices
  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • 1 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • cooking spray
  • 1/3 cup(s) chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/3 cup(s) fresh lime juice
  • 1 (15oz) can(s) no-salt-added pinto beans rinsed & drained
  • 1 (15oz) can(s) no-salt-added black beans rinsed & drained
  • 1 (15oz) can(s) no-salt-added kidney beans rinsed & drained
  • 2 avocado peeled & diced

Preparation

1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.

2. Place the tomatoes in a large bowl, and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Let stand 10 minutes.

Add corn, onion, and jalapeno to tomato mixture; toss well. Add remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, cilantro and next 4 ingredients, through kidney beans, to the corn mixture; toss well. Top with avocado.
