Easy Avocado Edamame Salad with sweet corn and black beans! Just 8 simple ingredients and packed with plant-based protein & fresh veggies.
This easy, 8-ingredient salad is filled with protein and fiber from the edamame and black bean combination. Then it's tossed with a simple squeeze of lime juice for some bright, fresh flavor.
It works great as either a side dish or main dish salad. It's beautiful year-round, but especially in summer when tomatoes and sweet corn are in season and at peak flavors.
Ingredients for Black Bean Salad
For this recipe you will need:
- Black beans
- Shelled edamame (cooked)
- Cherry/grape tomatoes (or roma)
- Sweet corn (cooked fresh, canned, fire-roasted, etc.)
- Red onion (or green onion for milder flavor)
- Fresh cilantro
- Lime juice
Also check out the variation notes below. Try it with other flavors such as garlic, cumin, agave, etc.
This is a fantastic make-ahead dish because the flavors intensify after it chills in the fridge. So it's a great choice for picnics, potlucks, take along lunches, meal prep, etc.
If making ahead of time, simply save the avocado to cut and add right before serving to prevent it from browning.
