seedless cucumber, quartered and cut into chunks
1 (15 ounce) can
black beans, rinsed and drained
cherry tomatoes, halved
frozen corn, thawed
red onion, chopped
extra-virgin olive oil
4 1/2 teaspoons
salt and ground black pepper to taste
I was looking for a new use for black beans and this recipe seemed interesting. Its fresh with a hint if sweetness from the honey and jam. I did substitute peach jam instead of marmalade.
Nothing too exciting...the marmalade kind of got lost in everything else.
Light, refreshing and tasty. Didn't have orange marmalade or the peach marmalade as called out by the other reviewer. Used black raspberry jam instead and canned corn. Such a versatile recipe that you can substitute the jam you have on hand as well as other ingredients. Recipe is definitely a keeper.
After a while, it seems that all recipes for salads with cucumbers, black beans, corn, and cumin taste alike. This one has differentiated itself by using the honey and orange marmalade in its dressing which gives it just the right amount of sweetness. Will make this one again and most likely cut back the olive oil to 2 Tbsp.
This is soooo good! I needed something to do with the cucumbers mom gave me from her garden and this was perfect! It's easy to prepare & perfect for a potluck or picnic too!
This was a bit hit at a pot luck dinner. I doubled the patch and added a little more marmalade for my taste along with an orange bell pepper for more color. What little was left over did not look so good the next day but tasted just as good.
I was looking for something to do with the abundance of tomatoes and lemon cucumbers from my garden. This is great. Even my husband who doesn't like cucumbers or tomatoes liked it. He & my 8 year old granddaughter asked for a serving in their lunch the next day.
2 Cups seeded and chopped cucumbers and 1 Cup seeded and chopped tomatoes. Any sweet onion will do, I used Vidalia but Walla Walla would be good too.
Delicious! Sweet and refreshing.
