This black bean corn salad is perfect for any potluck or get together!
This versatile dish has a hint of Mexican flare to it. It’s wonderful as a side dish or as a plant-based main meal. Enjoy it as is, or pair it with a main course of enchiladas or even top your taco salad with it! (It would make a great burrito filler too!)
We are still in the blistering heat of a California summer here, so this was perfect because it involved no cooking whatsoever. I bought the corn frozen and let it thaw, purchased canned beans which I rinsed and drained, then just mixed everything together! Easy and no heat in my kitchen. A perfect meal!
