Some foods transport you back in time, and this 3 bean salad recipe with fresh corn takes me back to high school summers in Milwaukee, when we’d make this refreshing salad and eat it in our backyard on a hot day.
Speaking of corn, did you know that you can eat corn kernels RAW?! My friend, Natalie, introduced this concept to me a couple years ago, and it blew my mind. Raw corn is crunchy, sweet, and juicy, and a great addition to any salad in the summer.
I think my favorite part about this salad is how easy it is to make — crack open some cans, add a few fresh ingredients, and voila! You’ve got a yummy bean salad that is a little sweet, sour, and has a little bit of a kick. If you’re lucky enough to have leftovers, this salad is awesome after some extra time in the fridge — all that juicy goodness gets to marinate a little longer, and your tastebuds will thank you later!
