  • 1 cucumber, diced
  • 1 cup corn, fresh, raw, or frozen & thawed

Protein Options (Choose One or Mix & Match!)

  • 1 can black beans, or 1-2 cups cooked

  • 1 ripe mango, diced


  • 1 avocado, diced


  • 1 lime, juiced

  • Toss everything gently together.
  • This salad keeps well in the fridge for a few days, although I would add the avocado before serving as it will turn brown.

    This looks wonderful if I leave off the cilantro 😂😜😂

    • Isn’t it funny how people either love or hate cilantro?

      • For some people, cilantro tastes like soap. It’s a genetic thing! I was having a hard time believing anyone could enjoy the taste of soap, then I learned cilantro tastes totally different if you don’t have the gene. Thanks for all the yummy recipes!!

    Made this using black beans, corn and organic edamame. It was absolutely delicious. Hubby was sceptical cause there was no oil. He loved it! Made it again a couple of days later. Recommended to several friends.
