Southwestern Black Bean Salad

I love this Southwestern black bean salad when the weather warms, it makes enough to feed a crowd. Also makes a great side dish or appetizer if served with chips or as a topping for taco salads. You can even serve with grilled meat and fresh tortillas.

Some other bean and Tex Mex inspired recipes you might like are Spiralized Mexican Sweet Potato and Chicken Casserole, warm Mexican Corn Salad (Elote), and Pinto Beans with Queso.

And BONUS, this bean salad is low in saturated fat and loaded with antioxidants. A perfect summer side dish for grilled meat, fish or chicken. It’s best when you use sweet fresh roasted corn, but if corn is not in season, frozen, thawed corn will work just fine in it’s place.
