Mexican Corn Salad

Happy New Year! Are you like me and ready for lighter, fresher foods? During the stretch of days between Christmas and New Year, I rarely ate raw vegetables or salads. Most vegetables were served cooked or roasted. Here’s a recipe that doesn’t require cooking. This corn salad is quick and easy to prepare. I like this served alongside cilantro-lime rice and ground beef (or turkey) spiced with taco seasonings.

Mexican Corn Salad

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups frozen corn, defrosted
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 can 15 oz black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 medium zucchini, chopped
  • Large handful of cilantro leaves, chopped

Dressing:

  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp sea salt

Directions:

  1. Place the all the salad ingredients in a large serving bowl and lightly toss to combine.
  2. Add the dressing ingredients to a tightly sealed jar and shake to combine. Pour over the veggies and lightly toss.
