This festive cilantro, corn, and black bean salad packs a colorful rainbow of veggies, beans, corn, and dressed with a fresh cilantro dress that is quick to make and will be a hit at the dinner table or your next party.
This cilantro, corn, and black bean salad is always highly requested at every gathering. My sister-in-law brought it a few years back and it is always gone in no time. I mean, even our steak and potato friends gobble it up. I wanted to serve something healthy and satisfying along with the traditional fare at the Superbowl a few weeks back and this was the first thing to come to mind.
This salad is satisfying as both a side dish, a topping for chicken or fish, or as a party dip in place of salsa. Just add some tortilla chips, but make sure to get the little bowl kind, and you are set! This salad yields about 5 cups so it is easy to double if you have a large party.
The best part about this salsa/salad is that it is pretty flexible. I like to add olives, but if it isn’t your preference, add more corn or peppers if you wish. Jalopeno could also be a nice addition if you want to add some kick to this cilantro, corn and black bean salad.
