Bean Salad Recipe

I love to make bean salad in the summer. It is so fresh and it's served cold, so it's perfect on hot days. I also love being able to make it ahead and just have it ready whenever we want something healthy for lunch.

I just made my bean salad for dinner the other night. We had it with grilled chicken and grilled corn on the cob. It was the perfect combination!

Bean salad recipe
  • 2 chopped plum tomatoes
  • 1 shaved carrot
  • 1 cup black beans
  • 1 cup red kidney beans
  • 1/4 -1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 2 cups of corn kernels
  • fresh parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • olive oil and balsamic vinegar

  • Mix all of the ingredients, season with salt, pepper, olive oil and balsamic vinegar to taste. Refrigerate. Serve cold.

  1. Looks and sounds yummy! I will have to try it! We like a k
    Lot of Mexican food here and the combo of black beans and corn is perfect as a side dish for Mexican food.
