A zesty and slightly spicy asian-inspired salad. I wanted to make a black bean salad for a barbeque that was a little different-- I checked out the various thai-inspired recipes on the Zaar, but nothing seemed exactly right for me (taking into account what I had on hand..), so I created something with a little inspiration frim other recipes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium serving bowl, whisk the broth, curry paste, lime zest, lime juice, scallions, cilantro, and sesame oil until well combined and smooth.
  2. Add black beans, corn, diced onions, and diced red pepper and toss to coat and distribute evenly.
  3. Refrigerate at least an hour, or overnight to allow flavors to develop.
  4. The curry paste is hot stuff, use more or less to taste.

I let this sit overnight and it was very good. I did not have any soy ginger broth so I used plain chicken broth and added 1/8 tsp of ground ginger. I am not sure if this even came close to what trader joe's tastes like but I think the end result was very good. This is an easy salad to through together and is very healthy. thanks for the recipe.
