For the dressing:
1 small garlic cloves
1 pinch salt
plus 2 teaspoons
3 tablespoons lime juice
about 1 1/2 each limes
2 teaspoons kosher salt
¼ teaspoon chili powder
or as needed
3 ½ tablespoons olive oil, extra-virgin
For the salad,
1 cup corn
fresh, from about 2 ears, or frozen and thawed
1 each orange bell pepper
½ small red onion
finely chopped, about 1/4 cup
1 tablespoon olive oil
15 ounces black beans
1 can, drained and rinsed
kosher salt
to taste
black pepper
freshly ground to taste
1 cup cherry tomatoes
1 small avocados
hass, halved, seeded and diced
¼ cup cilantro
freshly chopped, both leaves and stems


For the dressing:

Smash the garlic clove, sprinkle with a pinch of the salt, and, with the flat side of a large knife, mash and smear the mixture to a coarse paste.

Mix together the garlic paste, lime juice, salt and chili powder together in a bowl.

Gradually add the olive oil and whisk, starting with a few drops and then pouring the rest in a steady stream.

For the salad:

Heat a skillet over medium high heat, add the oil and cook the corn, bell pepper, and onions until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes.

Stir in the black beans and cook until warm, 3 to 5 minutes.

Pour the dressing over and toss to coat evenly.

Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if desired.

Remove from the heat and gently fold in the tomatoes, avocado, and cilantro.
