Corn and Black Bean Salad

To go with my homemade Corn Tortillas yesterday, I wanted to make a more substantial side than my regular lettuce, tomatoes and onions with the tostadas. Also, I am still trying to empty out my freezer, so a way to use up the few bags of frozen corn lurking in the depths was a welcome change!

My husband ate it on the side of his tostados, and I dumped it all over. It was great! My son very carefully picked out the black beans to eat them, but was happy doing it, so that's a victory!

Corn and Black Bean Salad
