Hello summer time!

Warm weather is here where I live and I’m craving all things light, fresh and simple! This black bean and corn salad is SO tasty. It’s full of perfect summer flavours and pairs well with any bbq protein or even taco chips for a dip!

It’s a great make ahead salad. Just chop all of your vegetables and make your dressing up to 24 hours before eating. Then, toss it all together before your meal for an easy side dish that is definitely a crowd pleaser.

This salad features black beans, corn, fresh chopped vegetables and cilantro. Bringing it all together is the tastiest cilantro lime dressing.

Enjoy this summer salad ☀️
