Black Bean and Corn Dip

Southern Living is my all time favorite "Go TO" for recipes. I love it... but I am southern girl. I found this recipe years ago labeled Black Bean and Corn Salad. I have always served it as a dip. In fact, this recipe is a tradition at several of our Sunday School parties - especially the 4th of July party. Please try this. It is so fresh tasting- the perfect tastes of summer!



Black Bean and Corn Dip (Southern Living)

3 fresh ears of corn
4 Tbsp. lime juice
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
2 (15oz) cans black beans, rinsed and drained
3 large tomatoes, seeded and chopped
3 jalapeno peppers, seeded and chopped
1 small purple onion, chopped
1-2 avocado, peeled, seeded and chopped
¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro (use kitchen shears)

Cook corn in boiling water to cover for 5 minutes; drain and cool. Cut corn from cob. Whisk together lime juice and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Add corn, black beans and remaining ingredients; toss to coat. Cover and chill 2 hours. Serve with Fritos SCOOPS!!
