Girl Scout Pot Luck

Natalie had her last Girl Scout meeting last Thursday and they decided to do a pot luck party. I made Colorful Corn Salad and it had just enough Southwest flair but next time, I'm adding Black beans and extra's of the spicy stuff to take it over the top:

Colorful Corn Salad

Yield: 16-18 servings
2 packages (10 oz each) frozen corn, thawed
2 cups diced green pepper
2 cups diced sweet red pepper
2 cups diced celery
1 can 15 oz. Black beans
1 cup minced fresh parsley
1 cup chopped green onions
1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoon ground cumin
1-1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
6 tablespoons lime juice

In a large bowl, combine the first 13 ingredients. In a microwave-safe dish, combine the oil and garlic. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 30 seconds. Cool. Whisk in lime juice. Pour over the corn mixture and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
