  1. In a small bowl whisk together oil, vinegar, Dijon, cumin and garlic until well blended; season with salt and pepper to taste, add in some sugar if you find that the dressing is too strong.
  2. In a medium bowl combine the cooled or cold cooked rice, black beans, corn niblets, bell peppers and green onions.
  3. Add in enough dressing to moisten; toss to combine (you don't have to use the full amount of dressing).

Nice salad, enhanced I think, with halved cherry tomatoes added just before serving. Thank you!

First off, my reading skills were not the greatest. The review that said they liked it hot, I immediately thought it could be a cold salad or a hot rice dish.. Needless to say, it was tried both ways.. To be honest, I like the hot version I mistakenly created..I therefore believe, it could be enjoyed in the summer as a cold salad, or in the winter as a heated rice dish.. Great both ways.. Thanking you Kittencal for the idea... Cat^..^atude...........
