Colourful Mexican Salad

Currently our favourite healthy salad, this colourful Mexican side dish is a fabulous with a BBQ and also goes very well with my slow cooked beef tacos.

I don’t know about you, but I’m still trying to avoid going to the supermarket too much.

I stock up on my tinned/frozen favourites so I don’t have to. With this in mind, this salad can be made almost completely from larder cupboard staples.


1 tin black beans (rinsed)
1 tin sweetcorn (I’ve used frozen too)
5 jarred jalapeno pieces (optional)
1 red onion finely chopped
Handful chopped coriander
3 large tomatoes finely chopped – (I’ve used jarred sweet red peppers instead too)
Juice of 1 lime
1tbsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
I also added seeds from 1/2 a pomegranate
Mix together and serve.
