Super Simple Bean Salad

Between our hectic schedule, a new business and trying to maintain the household and get to the gym I'm short on meal creativity lately.  This is not detox-friendly but it was either this or delivery!  Enjoy!

Please feel free to make this recipe from scratch (no cans).  If I had the energy I would definitely prefer fresh!

Simple Bean Salad

1 can Canellini beans, drained
1 can black beans, drained
1 can whole kernel corn, drained
1 large green bell pepper (or red), diced
1 large jalapeno pepper, diced
1/2 and onion, diced
1 clove of garlic, diced or crushed
juice of 1 lemon or lime, I use lime
pepper

*This recipe would also be great with olives but I didn't have any*

Directions
Add all of the ingredients into a bowl and mix.  Simple!  Enjoy!
*This simple salad is even better after it's been in the fridge for a few hours*

Serve this simple bean salad with rice or quinoa.  This is a great addition to burritos, tacos and tostadas.

  9. Hello.
    Visiting from serenity Saturday.

    I love beans, but have never been too keen on black beans or hot peppers. This is a good combination. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi Andy! I made this again today but I was out of black beans so I used "pink beans" and it was super. You can also substitute the hot peppers for more sweet peppers.
