Sweet Corn Salad with Black Beans

Sweet corn and black beans, a classic summer time salad I enjoy no matter the season. Of course, I insist on juicing the limes so I get the full blast of tangy citrus. The bell pepper adds a bit of crunch as the jalapeno provides just enough heat to keep things interesting. Cilantro rounds out the south of the border theme. This is one of my favorite salads, especially when the lime juice and salt are perfectly balanced. Be sure to adjust the seasoning before serving
