Bean and Corn Salad

Quick Ingredient Checklist:

1 can kidney beans

1 can pinto beans
1 can corn
1 can lima beans
2 cans black beans

1/2-1 red onion, chopped
cilantro (about 1/4-1/2 of a bunch), chopped
extra virgin olive oil
balsamic vinegar

This is a great summer salad full of protein and is also a great vegetarian option. You can substitute whatever variety of beans you like. We added double black beans because those are one of our favorites! Need something different to bring to a summer bbq? This light and refreshing salad is a great choice.
Simply mix all the beans and corn together in a large serving bowl. Add in the onion and cilantro. Dress with extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Add salt and pepper as desired.
