Corn & Black Bean Salad

corn-black-bean-salad.jpg

Corn is just starting to show up at our local farmer's markets, so I decided to buy a few sweet ears this weekend to make a super-simple salad full Kenya's favorite ingredients. I love preparing this delicious dish for several reasons_ it's a complete vegetarian protein because of the beans and corn, the mixture of colors and textures are appealing to a little one's eyes and it's easy on the wallet.

If you need a last minute pot luck dish this summer that's easy to prepare and that adults as well as kids will love, give it a shot!

    I have been making something similar to this for years! My son loves it. In my rendition I also add in one avocado, diced. In order to keep it from browning, I soak it in the juice of one lime before adding it to the salad.

    I made this tonight and it was VERY GOOD! I forgot to cook the corn and it still ended up great. Thanks for the easy, good recipe! Oh, I paired it with enchiladas- good combination!
