Black Bean and Corn Salad

Hi guys! It’s Kelley back from Chef Savvy! Today I am sharing a delicious Black Bean and Corn Salad! It takes less than 10 minutes to make and only requires a few ingredients.

Healthy, easy and loaded with tons of flavor. Corn, black beans, tomatoes, red onion, cilantro and avocado are tossed in lime juice and olive oil. Perfect as an appetizer, snack or as a side dish to fish or chicken. Serve with homemade tortilla chips or on tacos!

How do you make Black Bean and Corn Salad?

  • To make this festive Avocado Corn and Black Bean Salad simply add all of the ingredients to a medium bowl except for the avocado.
  • Toss to combine.
  • Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to develop.
  • When ready to serve add in avocado and toss gently making sure not to mash avocado. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Can you make Black Bean and Corn Salad ahead of time?

Yes! This is a great side dish or dip to make ahead of time. It will last about 2 to 3 days in the refrigerator. You will want to add the avocado when you are about to serve the salad.

Can you use fresh corn?

Yes! Fresh corn will taste just as great! Cook the corn on the cob on the stove top and cut off the corn kernels after it has turned a darker yellow.
