Black Bean and Corn Salad

August 26, 2014

It’s that time of year that chilled salads, prepping at midnight and fast pan grilling rule my life.  This is one of my pantry salads which are essential.  You can substitute the pimentos with your luscious tomatoes from your garden, but right now I am just ordering tomato seeds to plant next month.  I did manage to top this beautiful salad with some fresh grilled grouper and dinner was done.
