black bean & citrus salad

I found this recipe in one of my cookbooks.  Actually if you clicked on the link, you saw that it's not really a cookbook but a "deck" of recipe cards.  It screamed summer...and I didn't want to clean...so I made it.  

Black Bean and Citrus Salad

2-15oz. cans of black beans - rinsed and drained
1 cup corn

Chop up this stuff:
1 tomato
red onions - 1/2 cup
1 red bell pepper
cilantro - 1/2 cup
1 avocado

2 oranges, peeled, sectioned and cut in small pieces
1 grapefruit, cut like the oranges

Put everything in a bowl.  Mix

1/4 cup fresh lime juice - I used 2 limes
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
3 Tbsp. veg. oil
1 Tbsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. salt

Whisk together.  Pour over salad.  Mix.

It will last in the refrigerator for 3 or 4 days.  

Instead of eating my salad with a fork, I ate mine with some blue corn tortilla chips.
