Wonderful Salad Idea for Memorial Day Weekend!

inspiring healthy living

Happy Meatless Monday! This week’s recipe was one of those recipes that just got thrown together with whatever was lying around the kitchen. The result: a fresh, tasty, super healthy lunch 🙂

Sweet Corn & Black Bean Salad

Ingredients:

2 cups black beans, rinsed and drained

1 cup frozen sweet corn, thawed

1/2 cup grape tomatoes, roughly chopped

1/2 cup chopped bell peppers

1/4 cup finely chopped red onion

1 large handful fresh cilantro, chopped

1 tbsp olive oil

2-3 tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice (about half a lime)

Pepper, to taste

Simply mix everything together! I had this salad on a warm, whole wheat tortilla with a bit of cheddar cheese sprinkled on top. I threw the salad in a saucepan for a couple of minutes to heat it up and added some cayenne pepper to give it a bit of a kick. Enjoy!
