Black Bean, Corn and Tomato Salad

I made this salad a few weeks ago with some fresh corn and tomatoes from the Farmers Market. It was such a great side dish for Mexican Chicken Kiev..you can find that recipe here. It makes a large salad, enough for a few meals for the two of us. We love the combo of flavors and bit of zip from the cumin and chili powder. It's a winner!

1/2 c. veg. oil ( can use olive oil)
juice of two limes
3/4 tsp. cumin
3/4 tsp. chili powder

1/2 c. chopped red onion
