MEXICAN BLACK BEAN AND CORN SALAD
As promised, here is the recipe for the Black Bean and Corn salad that I have been using as a topping on our Slow Cooker Chicken Tacos. It’s absolutely phenomenal and really easy to throw together! We live in Kansas and if we could, we would eat corn every day. My kiddos are always happy to see it on the dinner table. I knew they will love this salad! It’s just another way for us to enjoy it. For me, the red onion and lime juice make a fantastic flavor combo. Fresh with a zing! Love it!

It is very common to add chopped cilantro to a black bean and corn salad. But here is the thing: I cannot stand cilantro. I tried. I tried really hard. If only all it did was adding the green color but it has that particular flavor that can take over a salad like this and if you don’t like it – you won’t enjoy this salad. That’s why it’s not in the recipe. It’s only a garnish for the photo. 🙂 But if you happen to love it, feel free to throw some in!
This salad is perfect for picnics, summer gatherings, parties and always a crowd-pleaser!
