Kitchen Spotlight: Mojo Corn Salad


Warm weather means warm weather foods!

So last night we grilled out, and my contribution to the meal was one of my fave sides: marinated corn salad. I love this light, summery dish–not only because it’s yummy but also because it’s super easy and requires no actual cooking.

Here’s how it works:

  • 1 16 oz. bag of frozen corn
  • 1 15 oz. can of black beans (drained, rinsed)
  • 2 medium tomatoes (diced)
  • 1 onion (small, diced. I only used about 1/4 of a small onion last night.)
  • Mojo marinade (1/2 cup) (You can make this yourself, but I don’t. I get it from the ethnic foods aisle of the grocery [Latin]. Related: if you haven’t used Mojo marinade before–get on it! Zero calories and tons of flavor–great marinade for veggies, fish, pork, etc.)
  • Honey (1 tbsp)

Now, here’s the hard part: you thaw the corn in a colander in the sink by running cool water over it for a few minutes. Then, you pour it into a medium-sized bowl and add all the other ingredients.


Let sit & chill.

Eat Serve.

    I don’t know Jenn, that seems like a lot of work. 😉 That’s for the recipe.

    Just made it to serve tomorrow for a group of ladies coming over to the house. I added sliced red and orange peppers and some fresh basil and thyme. A very colorful and easy dish! Thanks for sharing.
