Corn & Black Bean Salad

This is a quick, easy, and simple salad that can be used in so many different ways. It’s an inexpensive and quick dish to bring to a potluck. It can be served as an appetizer or side, eaten alone or with tortilla chips, or used in tacos or burrito bowls.

The serving size of 10 assumes that the dish will be eaten as a side or used in tacos, burritos, etc. If you’re serving this as an appetizer or bringing it to a potluck, don’t feel the need to double the recipe, as it makes a good bit. It almost filled my vintage Pyrex 403 bowl, which has a 2.5 quart capacity.
