There are versions of this black bean and corn salad floating all around the internet.  I have been making variations of this for many years, and it is always a hit.  There are many ingredients that you can add to this, but I’ve tried to keep it as inexpensive as possible, while still keeping a delicious taste.  

Black bean and corn salad

Black beans, summer corn, tomato, garlic, jalapeño, salt, and limes are all super cheap.  Feel free to add red onion, cilantro, avocado, peppers, or anything else that sounds good, but if you are wanting inexpensive, stick to my list.  

This salad is great on its own with a fork, as a dip for tortilla chips or veggies, as a topping for tacos, on top of rice, or on top of chicken.  Give it a try.  You’ll be making it all summer!
