This Southwest-style salad was inspired by a recent trip to Arizona. Hominy is large, puffy, white corn with a nice bite to it. If you love the flavor of popcorn and the texture of pasta, this is a great whole grain to check out. Along with beans, it's one of the few canned foods I really enjoy. The cumin adds a hint of spice, and it goes well with the bright lime and the caramel flavor of the agave in the dressing.
