Summer inspired Corn & Bean Salad

Lynn Socko


I almost always have fresh Pico de Gallo on hand in the summer months, and this is a super fresh and refreshing salad or meal. The longer you let these sit, the better the flavors meld together.

For a meal, simply throw in chopped or diced up grilled or smoked meat, place in a tostado cup, taco shell or burrito, or even make a quesadilla.
