Notes

  • One large ear of corn makes about 1 cup of cut corn.

  • Cook your own dry beans. One cup dry black beans will make about 3 cups cooked black beans.

Comments

The easiest salad, ready in minutes! Made it with baked fish and it went together so nicely. My husband doesn't like cilantro sadly, but I added garlic powder, salad and pepper and the worked well. And we did use frozen corn which worked perfectly.

Great choice for lesson about seeds we eat!  Used half the vinegar and added 1/2 tsp. cumin.  Like frozen corn best.
