How to Make Southwestern Corn Salad


  1. In a medium serving bowl, add the tomatoes, onion, corn and beans.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, salt, honey and Dijon mustard. Pour the dressing over the veggies. Toss to coat. Chill the salad for a minimum of one hour.
  3. Just before serving, crush the basil between your fingers to release the oils and sprinkle over the salad.
  4. Variations:
    If you like a zestier dressing, you can add 1/4 tsp. chili powder to the mix. Or a pinch of cumin.

    Cheater's version: Use the dressing on a can of Southwestern corn mix. Don't forget the basil, but reduce it to 1/2 tsp.
