This unusual combination turns out to be one of our favorite salads; serve as a side to pork or chicken. The leftovers are great rolled up in tortillas with sliced avocado.

How to Make It

Arrange beans on one side of serving platter. Arrange corn on the other side of platter. Sprinkle seeds, cilantro, and parsley over beans and corn. Drizzle olive oil vinaigrette over the salad.

This is the best recipe EVER! I make it with black beans and white corn and just mix them and the seeds together with italian dressing, then sprinkle with cumin. Served with Fritos Scoops. Tip - to prevent hand staining, peel the seeds under water. Added bonus, the white stuff floats and the seeds sink, making the separation somewhat easier.

Reviewed this back before CL erased so many reviews! Grr... It is delicious, but use a simple lime juice, cumin, and olive oil combo instead of a bottled dressing. Great as a side with anything Mexican. We ate it again last night with chicken tamales. Poms are easy to deal with if you do the whole operation with your hands in a bowl of cool water..

This was so easy to prepare and extremely tasty. I admit that I was skeptical of the combination at first, but I'm glad that I gave it a chance. I omitted the cilantro.
