Whew - I've been taking a cooking siesta for awhile, and boyoboy y'all been talking a lot. Anyways, I experimented with the Black Bean and Corn Salad idear and came up with this. But it might need one extra eensy teensy flavor upper. Dunno, I'm open for suggestions. Bacon might be nice. It's real pretty! Yellow and bright green and red and loved the orange carrot strips. Hominy I think is more digestible than regular corn; soy is famous for nutrition. Edrena, eating healthier in the new year. Except for oreos. Hosoboser (Hominy & Soybean Salad on the Border) (edamames!) 1 package (12 oz) frozen shelled soybeans. Cook, drain & cold rinse. They will keep their texture. 1 16 oz. can hominy corn, drained 2 plum tomatoes, chopped 1 red pepper, chopped 3 green onions, chopped 2 ribs celery, sliced on the bias Had 1/2 little package of prepared carrot strips, too. 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram salt & pepper to taste Big handful of fresh cilantro, chopped & garnish Squirt or two of lime juice Mix it all together, better chilled to blend flavors for an hour or six. With no other dressing, probably pretty safe to tote for a picnic.
