      • 3 ears corn, husked or 2 1/4 cups frozen corn, cooked
      • 1 can (15.5 oz) black beans, rinsed and drained
      • 1 1/2 cups chopped fresh cilantro
      • 3 scallions, chopped
      • 2 cups chopped seeded tomatoes
      • 2 tsp chili powder
      • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice


      • If using fresh corn, bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add ears of corn and reduce heat to medium. Boil for 10 minutes. With tongs, remove corn from water and allow to cool. With a sharp knife, cut the corn off of the cob.
      • In a bowl, mix corn and remaining ingredients. Toss to combine. Refrigerate, covered, for at least 1 hour.
