Mexican Bean and Corn Rice Salad

READY IN: 2hrs 50mins
Recipe by Vino Girl

I got this recipe from my mother-in-law, who got it from a colleague. She knows how much I like light bean and corn salads, so she made it with me in mind, for a bridal shower we were throwing. She thought I would love it, and I did! :) I've got a couple other bean & corn salad recipes I enjoy, but this one is a bit different because of the rice and salsa. Good for you and tastes good, too. Prep time is mostly due to the time it takes to cook the rice.

I brought this to work for a mexican pot luck and it got raves. I did, however, make some changes according to my taste. I added 2 chopped jalapenos, chopped cilantro, a small can of sliced black olives, used the juice of 1 lime instead of the lemon, and added some Adobo seasoning and extra cumin. I used red onion and 1 smallish orange pepper to make it very colorful. I will definitely make this again, so thanks for the recipe.
