Black Bean Salad (Or Salsa)

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by gingerkitten D

This is a salad that can be EASILY thrown together very quickly for a healthy and tasty side dish. I fixed mine with ratherbeswimmin's grilled shrimp and it was a super combination! It is supposed to be a quick recipe, hence the canned tomatoes and beans, but if you make it fresh I am sure it will be even better!

This was great, but my husband only gave it 3 stars, so I am overriding him. I added fresh zucchini and it was just right. Since the salad tastes good at room temp, it works as a tasty work lunch as well. Thanks.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix beans, tomatoes, corn, and cilantro together in a large bowl.
  2. In a small bowl or jar with lid, mix lime juice, garlic, spices, and oil until well mixed.
  3. Pour over bean mixture and refrigerate at least 15 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Overnight is even better, though.
