Black Bean, Florida Corn and Red Pepper Salad

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 2 cups canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup fresh Florida sweet corn kernels, cooked and cooled (add 1/2 cup for baby)

Preparation

  • In a large bowl, whisk together the vinegar, oil, salt and pepper. Add the onion and black beans.
