Black, Yellow and Red Salad | Recipe | Lime Vinaigrette

I had originally forgotten to take a picture of this salad at our Cinco de Mayo party and had to remake it.  Luckily, this is snap to put together.  It was perfect for our party, but it's also a delightful salad on a warm day.  The black beans give the salad protein and the lime vinaigrette adds a nice burst of flavor.

I would like to try this easy recipe. Did you use frozen corn? If so, did you first cook it or did you put it in the salad once defrosted?

@Caroline Thanks for asking. I'll have to update my post. I cooked the frozen corn kernels according the package directions. Now that it's summer, you could also use cooked fresh corn kernels.
