Simple Southwest Salad--Black Beans and Hominy

click image to enlarge

This salad is light and fresh and bright with the simple flavors of lime, garlic, and cilantro. There's a nice contrast of textures between crisp sweet onion and bell pepper and the soft beans, hominy and tomato. The colors are pretty too.
