Recipe Notes

Try it at home

Experiment with different variations on this simple plant-protein-packed salad and see what recipe you like the best.

  • Use any type of beans. Pinto, white, garbanzo, kidney, navy, lima, or edamame soy beans would all work nice with this recipe.
  • Make dry beans by soaking them overnight and cooking on the stovetop with the guidance of an adult. Or used can beans for the convenience factor.
  • Use fresh corn off the cob. Peel the corn, remove the silky threads, and use a sharp knife to carefully cut away the corn kernels from the cob.
  • Try adding a jalapeno pepper with seeds removed and chopped into small pieces.
  • Add a1/4 a green, red, or yellow bell pepper chopped small.
  • Try different types of greens. Besides the ones mentioned above mustard greens, dandelion greens, endive, and cabbage would all go well chopped into small pieces for this salad. Notice how different greens have distinct flavors that add a new taste sensation to your recipe.
  • For a different flavor try cilantro chopped small instead of garlic.
  • Red onion chopped small is a good substitute for green onion. Onion powder canalso work to help season your salad.
  • Try adding a splash of apple cider vinegar or hot sauce if you like extra spice.
  • Add one avocado chopped into small pieces to take your salad to the next level of yum.
