Sunday Supper - Black Bean & Corn Salad

Today's Sunday Supper recipe is for Black Bean and Corn Salad.  Or salsa.  Most people probably eat it like salsa but I like to plop a big, giant spoonful onto my plate and eat it plain.  Eaten plain, without those salty, flour-filled chips, it's a pretty healthy side dish.  And cheap and easy to make!

Black Bean and Corn Salad

1 can of black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can whole kernel corn, drained 
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro or parsley (I never have fresh so I just crush up a little bit of dried and toss it in)
1/4 cup of your favorite salsa (generic store-brand works fine)
2 TBS lime juice
1/4 tsp. salt

Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and serve.

How easy is that??

Besides eating this recipe as a side dish or salsa, it also works great in quesadillas - just use a slotted spoon so it's not too liquidy.


  1. Mmmmm.....that looks great!!! I've been on a Mexican food binge lately. I've got to give this a try as soon as I get some decent salsa in the house. It's the one thing you can't get at our Mom and Pop grocery at the beach. I probably just need to learn to make my own.

  2. This is my 'go to' thing to bring to summer parties. I often use green salsa when I do it! It is also good over rice!

  3. yummmm... I love all things mexican!

  4. mmmmmm Looks so good. I 'd have to add cilantro!
