White lima beans, also sold as butter beans, are large, tender, and pick up flavors from their surrounding ingredients beautifully. They’re an excellent partner for fresh corn and the bright summer flavors in this salad.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh corn kernels
  • 1½ cups cooked white lima beans, if using canned drain and rinse well
  • ½ lb. red ripe tomatoes, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 Tbsp. finely chopped cilantro
  • 3 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 1½ tsp. chili powder
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions

  1. In a large 2 quart saucepan bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Stir in corn kernels and cook until corn is just cooked enough so that it’s no longer starchy but still crunchy (2-3 minutes). Drain corn into a colander and rinse with cold water to stop cooking process. Shake the corn to rid of excess water.
  2. Place corn in a large mixing bowl and add lima beans, tomatoes, onion, and cilantro.
  3. In a large mixing cup whisk together lime juice, chili powder, olive oil, oregano and salt until combined. Pour over corn and bean mixture. Sprinkle with cracked pepper to taste.
  4. Stir salad ingredients together to thoroughly coat everything with dressing. Cover and chill salad to allow flavors to blend (20 minutes).
