Corn salad with black beans, corn, avocado, tomatoes, and both sweet and spicy peppers! Tossed with a fresh and flavorful citrus vinaigrette for a gorgeous and healthy salad.
For as much as I could live on pie all winter long, all I crave in the summertime is quick, easy salads made with a bounty of fresh flavors. I think it’s my body’s way of balancing out all of the butter in my life.
Black Bean and Corn Salad is a perfect blend of simple pantry items and a load of fresh produce from the season. Canned black beans are blended with sweet bell peppers, avocado, garden ripe tomatoes, roasted sweet corn, and tossed with a zippy citrus dressing for a satisfying salad.
Black Bean and Corn Salad has so much flavor going on!
It can easily be whipped up in minutes and enjoyed all week without becoming a bore. I keep a big bowl of this corn salad in the refrigerator because I can hoover it in between chasing The Sons, and it leaves me feeling full and satisfied for hours!
This corn salad is perfect to serve with grilled chicken fajitas, grilled fish, or tucked inside of burritos or tacos. The spice level is easy to adapt to your tastes, too. Simply cut back on the spicy peppers if you want it a bit milder.
