3-4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2-3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 lime
1 teaspoon ground cumin
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
¾ cup cilantro finely chopped

In a serving bowl add beans, frozen corn, red onion, red pepper, and jalapeno.  Drizzle olive oil and vinegar over mixture.  Squeeze lime over salad.  Add cumin, salt and pepper to taste.  Add in cilantro and lightly toss salad.

*Remove inner membrane (white part) and seeds from the jalapeno if you don’t want the salad too hot.
