Recipe: Black bean and corn relish

Dietitian's tip: Use this black bean relish on top of mixed greens for a light salad or use it as a dip for baked tortilla chips. This relish also works well rolled up in a flour tortilla. For a spicier version, substitute chili powder or cilantro for the parsley.

Serves: 8


1 can (15.5 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained (about 2 cups)
1 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed to room temperature
4 tomatoes, seeded and diced
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/2 medium red onion, diced
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1 green, yellow or red bell pepper, seeded and diced
Sweetener, equivalent to 2 tablespoons sugar
Juice from 1 lemon


In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients. Toss gently to mix. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.
