Black Bean & Radish Salad Recipe

I didn’t really get into radishes until I met my husband.

He’s a huge fan.

We normally eat them raw with other veggies or in a salad.

I have been itching to mix it up a bit with radishes. They have that nice, peppery flavor and a gorgeous color.

They turned out to be a nice addition to a black bean and corn side dish recipe my mom passed along to me.

It’s tasty and versatile.

It can be used as a salsa with some corn chips, a side dish or even a healthy, vegan main dish when paired with some rice.

It can be served warm, room temperature or even cold out of the fridge.

If you have a bean or corn lover in your family, it’s a great way to get them to try new veggies.

Though, the best thing about my Black Bean & Radish Salad Recipe is that it only takes about 7 minutes to put together.

I used frozen corn and a can of black beans to make the meal super easy, but you can just as easily use fresh ingredients if you have more time.

I had cilantro in mind when I was making this dish, but the grocery store did not have any.

Instead, I just used the nutrient-packed radish greens as a substitute. They were just as tasty!
