I love to party. Specifically, to attend or throw a party where everyone brings something to share. This past weekend, I hosted a bunch of folks at my house for a BBQ and made my favorite no fuss side salad..
My husband perfected his ribs (I’m planning to convince him to make this a family blog, and have him write a little something on those amazing ribs), I made this salad, and everyone brought a little something else. We drank a LOT of beer, and the kids ran around chasing chickens, swinging on fences and splashing in the wading pool.
This is my new go to salad. It makes a ton, and I’ve been eating it all week as tacos/on top of mixed greens/straight out of the bowl with a spoon.
The lime juice really compliments the sweet corn, and it is so fresh and healthy!
3 cans of Black beans, drained and rinsed (or 2 cups of dried beans, cooked your favorite way)
Kernels from 4 ears of corn (no need to cook it)
1 large red onion
1 bunch of cilantro
Mix together. Eat. Costs 6 bucks and serves a million people.
Add diced mango if you have some around and it is ripe for an extra special, super amazing touch.
I still have no pictures because I’m busy doing other stuff…so here are the cutest kids ever…being cute.
