Liven up your south-of-the-border dinners with a colorful bean salad featuring grilled corn. This Latin-accented three-bean and corn salad is studded with guacamole components: jalapeño, cilantro, white onion, lime, and avocado.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.

Step 2

Place the tomatoes in a large bowl, and sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt. Let stand 10 minutes.

Step 3

Brush corn, onion, and jalapeño evenly with oil. Place vegetables on grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill corn for 12 minutes or until lightly charred, turning after 6 minutes. Grill onion slices and jalapeño 8 minutes or until lightly charred, turning after 4 minutes. Let vegetables stand 5 minutes. Cut kernels from cobs. Coarsely chop onion. Finely chop jalapeño; discard stem. Add corn, onion, and jalapeño to tomato mixture; toss well. Add remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, cilantro, and next 4 ingredients (through kidney beans) to corn mixture; toss well. Top with avocado.

I would simply use Trader Joe's frozen grilled corn to make it easier! Nothing earth shattering or unique about the recipe.

An absolute winner. We used 2 jalapeños as being grilled the peppers are milder, otherwise made as written. The flavors of the grilled veggies and the beans was a great combination. I put the avocados on the side to add to avoid smushing them and only cut was needed each time served. Great that day then wonderful as a lunch or "dip" with chips on following days. For the leftovers I may add more lime juice each time eaten as that seemed to wane after the first day. Will make again and again and serve with our 4th of July BBQ. Great protein for vegetarian guests.
