  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin (for Cumin Lime Dressing)
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper (for Cumin Lime Dressing)
  • 2 ears fresh corn, kernels removed
  • 1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed

  • Lettuce cups for serving (e.g., butter lettuce, baby gems, baby romaine)


  1. Combine the olive oil, lime juice, cumin, Massel Stock Powder and black pepper in a jar with a lid and shake really well until the dressing is emulsified. Set aside.
