Salads Vegetarian

Mexican Bean and Corn Salad

Are you currently in freak-out mode because it’s Cinco de Mayo and you’re getting together with friends, and you realized that you literally have nothing to bring to the table and it’s nearly dinner time? Yes, I do know that was a run-on sentence, but that fits so perfectly with the run-on feeling of panic you get when you haven’t prepared for something in advance.  

If the scenario above describes you today (or any other time you’re asked to bring a shared dish and you forgot), make this delicious salad. It seriously only takes about two minutes to make and it’s awesome. Nobody will know that you blew it, I promise. 


1 can corn, drained and rinsed

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

½ c. cilantro, chopped

4 green onions, chopped

1 jalapeno, membranes and seeds removed, chopped

½ c. cotija cheese, crumbled

Juice from 2 limes

Salt and pepper

Place all ingredients in a large serving bowl. Season with salt and pepper and mix to combine. Serve cold or at room temperature.
