Gluten Free Black Bean and Corn Salsa Taco Salad Recipe

We love Mexican food and salad, so what better combo is there than  making a Black Bean and Corn Salsa Taco Salad Recipe for dinner? I especially love how easy Salad night is when it comes to dinner prep!

We were challenged to whip together a salad with some of Wild Oats organic products sold exclusively at Walmart. If you haven’t heard of Wild Oats yet,  it’s an absolute must buy brand if you shop organic. We choose Wild Oats again and again as it’s priced competitively compared to ordinary brands, yet it’s all organic. Hooray!!!!!!!

So when whipping together this salad, I know I’m making extra healthy choices even though I’m using convenient canned corn, black beans, and tomatoes!

Directions: 

Combine all ingredients together in a large bowl. Drizzle with Wild Oats Organic Olive Oil after mixture complete.

Alternatively, lay out tortilla chips on a small plate and top with your corn and bean salsa mixture.

Tip: Kids prefer far less onion and cilantro than adults in general, and consider when making this as salad meal, you’ll also want less “kick” than you would if you were purely making a salsa for dipping chips. So go easy on the onions and cilantro when you make the recipe. If you find you need more kick, add it in afterwards or to just the adults portions.
