Summer Confetti Salad

13 Jul

Do you need a refreshing summer salad to beat the summer heat? This is it! I based this salad off of a recipe I found here. I served this along side grilled NY strip steaks, but it would complement any summer dish!


Summer Confetti Salad

Source: Based from a recipe I found on Bean Town Baker

  • 16 ounces of frozen corn, thawed
  • 2 cups diced tomatoes (I used Roma and yellow grape tomatoes)
  • 1 avocado sliced
  • 2 (14.5 oz) cans of black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 green peppers diced (yellow or red would add great color)
  • 4 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • cilantro, chopped to taste


Combine corn, tomatoes, black beans, and peppers in a large bowl. Whisk together lime juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. Pour over vegetable mixture. Add cilantro and mix well. Chill for 1-4 hours. Gently fold in avocado and allow salad to come to room temperature. Season again with salt and pepper if needed.

    This looks great! I saw this on the Beantown blog before and now I’m convinced I should try it 🙂 I especially like the addition of the yellow tomatoes. Even more color!

    What a wonderful summer salad! I feel like it needs a dollop of sour cream though! 🙂
