This is an adaptation of a Weight Watchers recipe. 1 cup = 3 points; 1-1/2 cups = 4 points.

Southwestern Black Bean Salad
1 16 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/2 cup cooked corn kernals
1/2 cup finely chopped red onion, or any sweet onion such as Vidalia or Walla Walla Sweet
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
One 4 ounce can chopped green chilies
1 tablespoon lime or lemon juice
1 tablespoon olive or canola oil
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped (or about 1 tablespoon from a jar)
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Toss well and serve. Nice accompaniment for Mexican food!
