Beware: this bean salad is EXTREMELY addictive! 😉

This bean salad goes so fast in our house. In fact it’s already gone as I’m writing this post!

It’s so fresh and full of flavour and packed with protein. Perfect for lunch or a summer barbecue side dish. Honestly, I eat it directly from the bowl.

This bean salad is super easy to make too! You can whip it up in no time at all- good for when you forgot that you were supposed to bring a dish to the potluck 😉

If you have a grill, by all means grill the corn 🙂 I bet it would be even better. I am no barbecue expert so I “grill” my corn in the oven.

Recipe Notes

if you are making this salad ahead of time, leave out avocado until just before serving to avoid browning.

What a whirlwind of a week! I’m so happy it’s Saturday. The forecast is rainy for today so I’ll be curled up with a big mug of dark roast coffee and a good book but tomorrow we are road-tripping! I’m making it a summer goal of mine to explore the beautiful province I live in 🙂 what are your weekend plans?

  1. YUM! We had something very similar for dinner last night, and I am convinced that it’s one of the best dinners ever! It’s so simple, yet so incredibly flavorful and delicious! I love the addition of mustard and honey here – I’ll have to try that next 🙂
