This colorful relish makes an ideal partner to chicken or any grilled meat. It also steps in as a starring ingredient in a vegetarian salad that you will find here tomorrow. Or, simply serve with pitas as a cocktail snack.


1 (15-ounce) can red beans
1 ripe avocado, coarsely chopped
½ cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
¼ cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
¼ teaspoon pepper, or to taste
Salt to taste

Stir together all the ingredients in a small bowl. Refrigerate briefly to allow flavors to meld.
