While visiting with family last week I had the most delicious corn-and-bean salad I've ever tasted. After just one bite, I was hooked. I couldn't help but cut my way back into line again for seconds (and thirds, maybe?). The following day, I was even caught sneaking spoonfuls of the leftovers…more than once. Oops.
Now, as head-over-heels as I was about this tasty side dish, I can't believe I left without getting the recipe! What was I thinking??
I've been searching online all week for it, but I just can't seem to find an exact replica of the recipe.
Here's what I'm pretty sure I was tasting:
And here are the imposters I've come across so far:
–Cooking Light's All-Purpose Southwestern Corn and Black Bean Salad. Mmm this recipe includes lime juice and honey in the dressing, and it offers great suggestions for turning it into a main-dish salad or a dip!
–RealSimple's Three Bean Salad. This one actually looks pretty similar, and I like the addition of chickpeas!
–All You's Corn and Black Bean Salad. This recipe's really close too! I could just switch the roasted red peppers out for kidney beans. Maybe their cider vinegar is the secret ingredient I'm missing!
–Southern Living's Black Bean Salad. This picture looks almost identical! Just hold the jalapeños and tomatoes, and add in the kidney beans. I like the fresh corn!
Anyone have any leads for me, or maybe a favorite recipe of your own that I might love just as much?
