Light, healthy and full of protein, this salad takes just minutes to put together and makes a great side dish for a bbq or cookout. I’ve also put it on tacos, fajitas, quesadillas, crab cakes and even bruschetta (toast some french bread with olive oil then put goat cheese and the salad on top = deliciousness). The salad can be made the day before and transports well.
1 can, 14 ounces, black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can corn, rinsed and drained (can use frozen or roasted corn)
1 small red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1/2 red onion, chopped
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1 lime, juiced
2 tablespoons olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, toss, chill in fridge then serve.
How easy is that?
