Santa Fe Olive Toss

canned sweet corn
1 small red bell pepper,
seeded and diced
1 small yellow bell pepper,
seeded and diced

3/4 cup canned black
2 tablespoons freshly
squeezed lime juice
Combine olives, corn, bell peppers, green onions
and black beans in a bowl.

oil. Stir into the olive mixture.
Add cumin, chili powder and cilantro to the olive
mixture; mix well. Taste and season with salt and
pepper as needed. Makes 10 servings.

with beef or chicken. For a completely vegetarian
version, serve it with salad or coleslaw.
