One side, used several ways

Black Bean Corn Salad

This dish was first introduced to me by a Surgery Resident wife at one of my Husband’s big “barbque” parties he throws every 1-2months. The taste was wonderful, refreshing and didn’t leave you feeling bloated or uncomfortable afterwards.  The best part- it’s easy! Rinse, dice, combine, refrigerate, and your done!

1-2cans of black beans, rinsed and drained

1 can corn, rinsed and drained

1 hand full of cilantro, finely chopped

1 package of cherry tomatoes, quartered

1-2 bell peppers, diced

1 onion, diced

2-3 fresh squeezed key limes


Grilled chicken with salad, salsa mixture, and avocado


I typically make a huge bowl of it for John and I weekly and add the mixture to whatever we have for the day-

  • Lunch- whole wheat wrap, black bean/ corn salsa, and add a high protein meat like grilled chicken, fish, or tempeh.
  • Dinner- we typically use it as an addition to our salads by chopping up some fresh greens then getting a big spoon full of the black bean/ corn salsa and pouring it over. Tasty!

However you like to enjoy it, give it a try to let me know what you think! Bon Apetite!
