Summer Black Bean Salad Recipe The Honeycomb Home

Every once in a while I take a break from DIY and design to share a recipe.  This only happens when a recipe really inspires me because as I have mentioned before, I really don’t love to cook.  Since this Black Bean Salad recipe is one of my go-to’s for summer time I decided it was worthy of posting about.   It’s technically a salad, but it can be used as a dip with tortilla chips or spooned over grilled chicken, or whatever meat you like.  It is the most versatile summer recipe!  It’s also very inexpensive to make, feeds a crowd, is low in fat,  and it’s healthy!  Holla!

You can swap out an ingredient or two to customize it to your family’s preferences.  For example,  I use cucumber in mine, but you could swap out the cucumber for avocado or use both.

To make, you first will drain and rinse the 2 cans of black beans and drain one can of corn.  Add them both to a large mixing bowl, then add the chopped tomatoes, cucumbers and onion.  Combine the oil, vinegar and sea salt in a separate bowl before adding to the bean mixutre.  (printable recipe below)

It’s that easy!  I picked up the striped blue and white place mats at Home Goods recently.  They’re so summery.  And the rustic “we sell live crabs” sign was a fun find at my favorite flea market.

Be warned,  this black bean salad is addicting!

Keep in mind,  the recipe calls for 1/2 cup of olive oil, but I actually use a little less than that because it’s a bit too greasy for me.  You may want to play around with the ratio to suit your taste.   If you like your food with a little kick, you could also add in a hint of hot pepper sauce, or chopped jalapenos peppers.  Enjoy!
