This zesty relish can be served on its own with chips, but can also be made into a heartier salad by adding meat, pork loin, lamb, or maybe skirt steak.
4cupscooked black beans
2cupscooked corn kernels
2large, ripe tomatoes, roughly chopped
1large red or yellow bell pepper, finely diced
½jalapeño pepper, seeds removed, finely chopped
1large red onion, finely chopped

If beans are canned, rinse thoroughly. In a large bowl, combine the beans with corn, tomatoes, bell pepper, jalapeno pepper, onion and coriander. (If salad is not to be served immediately, wait until just before serving to add the tomatoes.
Combine the garlic with cumin and coriander; whisk in the lime juice and olive oil. Pour over the salad. Season with salt and pepper.
