Grilled Corn & Black Bean salad

Sue Adame


I made this for a BBQ a few weeks ago and let me tell you it was a huge hit. I made it the morning of but when I had some the next day (what little there was) it was even better.
It is a salad but very versatile. Use it to top tacos, make lettuce wraps or just grab some tortilla chips and dig in. ha ha
