Southwest Salad
Yields 6-8 servings

Ingredients:

2 c. brown rice
1-15 oz. can black beans, reduced sodium, drained and rinsed
2 c. frozen corn, thawed
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 small white onion, chopped
1/4 c. white wine vinegar

Variations:

Try the recipe without the rice and add a second can of black beans.
Serve warm as a side dish or chilled as an appetizer with chips.
Add diced grilled chicken for a quick entree.
Add an extra jalapeno for a little more kick.
Double the recipe. Makes great leftovers!
