Tahoe Salad

Kellie had this salad when she spent a few days in Lake Tahoe last month. It doesn't really have an official name, so we dubbed it "Tahoe Salad." It is simple and FABULOUS.

Tahoe Salad

black beans
green onions
fresh lime juice
salt and pepper to taste

Julie's Notes: Instead of diced tomatoes, Kellie used grape tomatoes and cut them in half lengthwise. We also used fresh corn, but frozen would be fine.
