Spanish Black Bean, Corn and Tomato Salad



Sweet corn is grilled or sautéed for this recipe to impart a smoky flavor that is complemented by the Spanish spices in our Taste the Seasons Gazpacho mix. With the addition of black beans and tomatoes, it is delicious when served as a salad or as a relish with chips.
