A super healthy black bean and hominy salad with a sweet & tart dressing.
What is Hominy?
I was motivated to make this Mexican Black Bean and Hominy Salad for my father-in-law who challenged me to make something with Hominy. It’s not that I didn’t know what Hominy was, I just didn’t have a recipe in mind that I could use it with.
If you’ve never heard of hominy, It’s basically corn that has been treated. If you are curious about how it’s made check out this explanation on Wikipedia. Personally, I use the canned hominy for my recipes.
It’s really easy to find Hominy here on the West Coast, but might be a little more challenging in some parts of the country. Just check the Hispanic section of your local grocery store as that is where they may stock it.
Hominy can also be used to make Masa (for tamales), pozole, hominy bread, hominy chili, casseroles, and fried dishes.
