Corn Salad

Jyl.Ferris's picture
This fresh corn salad is made with black beans, roasted red peppers, basil and scallions with an orange vinaigrette dressing. This salad can be served with meat, poultry, or as in this case, seafood. Using canned beans is just as good as using dry ones. The difference is that the canned is a little saltier so consider that when seasoning. It's easy to make your own salad dressings. They are fresh and don't use any additives. Watch the videos and see. When you cook for yourself you can Save Money, Eat Healthier, Live Greener and Have Fun!
