This easy and delicious black bean salad features both cilantro leaves and seeds, which add a distinctive flavor. Yes, in case you didn’t know, coriander is cilantro seed. Cilantro has mildly antiseptic properties —... not a bad thing when you’re undergoing treatment — plus the cilantro flavor and spiciness of this salad will help to wake up your taste buds.
On a preheated grill, grill the corn until there is a light char on all sides. About 4 minutes per side, depending on how hot the grill is. Once cool, slice the kernels off the cob.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the cilantro, lime juice, olive oil, cayenne, and coriander. Season with salt and pepper.
Add the corn, radishes, red onion, and black beans to the dressing. Toss the salad and the dressing together.

If using whole corn cobs, give your salad an extra flavor boost by grilling corn on a grill or broil it until charred on all sides, then add to the bowl when mixing in remaining ingredients. If you don’t have a hot grill available, broil the corn in an oven.
