Corn and Black Bean Salad

I have so many recipes to post, but no time to post them! Balancing baby with work has proven to be challenging! I know it will just take time to get it down. I am still absolutely overjoyed by my role as a mommy! Diane is a doll and I am having fun treating her as one with all of her fun clothes!
I can't believe she is already 3 months!
I love a baby in a bonnet!
 With Gigi!
 Those eyes!
 With Nanny!
 Such a happy girl!
At the beach yesterday for J's office family day!
 She loved the hot tub.

This has become one of our favorite salads. My mom made it for us when she was here after Diane was born and we have made it several times since. It is so refreshing!

Corn and Black Bean Salad

1 can Black Beans, drained and rinsed
1 can sweet Corn, drained
1/2 medium cumber
3/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
3 green onions
2 limes juiced
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 tsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste

Drain and rinse black beans, drain corn. Add to mixing bowl.
Dice cumbers. You want them to be around the same size as the corn kernels. Chop green onions (white and green parts), chop cilantro.
Add feta, cilantro, cucumbers and green onions to bowl.
In a separate bowl mix together vinegar and lime juice. 
Pour dressing into mixing bowl, season with salt, pepper and cumin.
Mis ingredients well and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. This salad gets better with time!
