Recipe: Zucchini Corn & Black Bean Salad w/Lime Flax Dressing

Tags: , , , , , ,

 

Black Beans add additional fiber and protein.

 

 

Servings: 6 – 1 cup servings
Prep time: 10 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes

I love summer squash and I’ve been seeing it lately in the store; however, the last time I stocked up on zucchini I didn’t quite get to it on time.  Today I was determined to make something with zucchini and this salad is the result.

Zucchini is a great source of fiber, potassium and Vitamin C — to name a few.  Add to it the fiber and protein from black beans and this salad quickly doubles as a vegetarian entree!

Try it for a simple, quick dinner or take it to your next barbecue this weekend!

Ingredients

  • 3 Zucchinis, medium sliced into rounds
  • 1 15 oz can Whole Kernel Corn, No Salt Added, drained and rinsed
  • 1 15 oz can Black Beans, 50% Less Sodium, drained and rinsed
  • 20 Grape Tomatoes sliced in half, lengthwise

Dressing

  • 1 Tbsp Flax Seed Oil, Virgin
  • 1 Tsp Chopped Basil, dried
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1/4 tsp No Salt
  • Pepper

Toss zucchini, corn, black beans, and tomatoes into a large bowl (preferably one with a lid).

Mix dressing and pour over salad mix.

Cover with lid and toss/shake until well combined.

Serve and enjoy!
