Rainbow Black Bean Salad

This recipe serves: 
1/4 cup dried black beans
1/4 bay leaf
1/2 clove garlic, peeled and halved
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 pinch cumin
1 pinch ground coriander
pinch of cayenne pepper
1/4 medium red onion, diced
1/4 large green pepper, diced
1/4 large red bell pepper, diced
1/4 cup corn kernels (fresh blanched or frozen)
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
1/4 tablespoon lime juice
Cooking Instructions
1. Place the beans in a colander and rinse with cold water. Pick over the beans to remove any stones. Place the beans in a clean pot, cover with fresh cold water and soak for at least 4 hours or overnight. Drain.

2. In a large pot, combine the beans, onion quarters, bay leaf, freshly ground black pepper, cumin, coriander and cayenne pepper with 1 quart of water and bring to a boil.

3. Reduce heat and simmer until the beans are tender, about 1 hour.

4. Drain the liquid from the beans and remove the onions, garlic and bay leaf.

5. Combine the black beans, red onion, green and red pepper and corn in a large bowl. In a separate bowl mix the lime juice, vinegar and oil. Pour over the beans and vegetables and toss to combine.

6. Taste and adjust the seasonings, adding additional cayenne pepper if you want the salad spicier.

Serving Size: about 3/4 cup of salad
