Three Bean Salad

I was looking for a nice salad to accompany a delicious, rich mac ‘n cheese and I just couldn’t decide what kind to make. Would a green salad be best? Or maybe a potato salad? Potato salads seem a bit too heavy given the mac ‘n cheese. How about a bean salad? It wasn’t long until I found a delicious three bean salad that worked perfectly.

What really makes this three bean salad is the addition of feta cheese. Talk about a great addition! The feta gives it a nice kick. This salad is a wonderful summer accompaniment for meat, pastas, and more.

Ingredients

  • 16 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained

  • 2 ears of cooked corn, kernels removed from cob
  • ½ cup white vinegar

  1. Put all of the beans, the red pepper, the tomatoes, and the corn into a large bowl and mix well.
