Southwestern Black Bean and Hominy Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by lecole54

Like the rest of the northeast, it's been a hot summer here in Eastern Maine; however, most of us here don't have airconditioning, so I'm on the lookout for interesting whole-meal salads! Found this on epicurious. If you haven't tried hominy, it's about time: it's corn treated with cooking lye, so that it comes out with a texture and flavor somewhere between corn and garbanzo beans. Recipe calls for yellow hominy, but all we can find here is white; doesn't make any difference in the taste, from what I can tell. Give it a little time in the refrigerator before serving so it's nice and cold!

I made this recipe because it used hominy instead of fresh corn. The hominy gives the salad a great earthy taste, and the texture is hearty. I did cut this recipe in half, but it did not compromise the flavors. I used 2 very small serrano peppers because that's what I had on hand, and yes, it packed enough heat, but not over powering. I used a homemade tomatillo salsa verde instead of the canned version. I loved the flavors and textures after chilling for an hour. Thanks so much for sharing this very good recipe.
