Slick black beans contrast with golden corn in this anything-but-boring rice salad that’s jazzed up with pickled jalapeño peppers and lime juice.
Pickled jalapeño tip
We found both cans and jars of pickled peppers in the Mexican food section of several supermarkets. Both fiery and salty, these pickled jalapeños with attitude dress up sandwiches, salads and burritos. They add an amazing taste to this salad.
Toasted cumin seed tip
Toasting rounds out and intensifies the flavour of cumin. Place a dry small frying pan over medium heat. Add cumin seed. Shake pan or stir until seeds darken and become very fragrant, from 1 to 2 minutes. Cool before using.
