Roasted corn and black bean salad is a 21 Day Fix approved side dish recipe that is a taste of the southwest!
Confession #35 – I could spend a whole day at Trader Joe’s and be totally content. No, more than content. I would love every second. In fact, there is something so incredibly happy and welcoming about it, when I am there, I always think how fun it seems for the employees. I picture myself donning my own Hawaiian shirt while handing out free samples of some amazing exotic fruit.
A girl can dream, right?
And one of my favorite things to buy is so simple, but makes such a difference in salads, chili, and soups is frozen roasted corn.
What a delicious time saver we have here. Have you tried it? It’s awesome. I just restocked on my supply, so I plan to use it in a bunch of upcoming recipes.
For today, in case anyone still needs a good corn and bean salad recipe for a potluck or just for lunch, I use the roasted corn in place of regular corn to add a smoky sweet flavor to this old standby. And the measurements for this are FIXed, so you only be using 1/2 YELLOW for each 1/2 cup serving.
With all of the healthy goodness in it, what’s not to love about this roasted corn and black bean salad?
- 1 cup black beans (if using canned, rinse well)
- 1 cup roasted corn (thawed)
- 1 cup sweet cherry tomatoes, quartered
- 1 cup of chopped peppers - I used orange and green for fun colors
- 1/4 diced red onion
- 1 tablespoon of chopped cilantro
- juice of one lime
- 1 tablespoon of honey (optional)
- Mix all ingredients together and add honey, if desired, for a slightly sweet flavor
21 Day Fix Container Count:
6 servings - each 1/2 cup serving = 1/2 YELLOW, 1/2 GREEN (If you have a BLUE leftover, add some avocado!)
This salad is awesome alone, or as a topping for tacos, wraps and salads! So versatile!
