Corn salad

In lieu of corn on the cob, I decided to make a corn salad for our 4th of July BBQ. It's very simple and quick to make. You can also make it ahead of time to save yourself a bit of stress when you're having over 30 people over :)

Ingredients:
- 2 or 3 cans of sweet corn, drained

- 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed

- 1/2 red onion finely diced

- 1 red bell pepper finely diced

- Basil leaves

- Olive oil
- Vinegar
- Salt & Pepper


Directions:

- Mix all the ingredients together and serve or cover and keep it in the fridge until your guests arrive.


I told ya it was easy!

This is great mix for a salad! Good point about making it in advance too.

i looove corn salad, but i can't wait long enough to put it together; the corn usually disappears before the beans are done. :P

@mina - that's why i put 2-3 cans of corn in. I usually end up eating a good amount of the corn before it makes it to the salad too! :)
