If you’re looking for something fresh and healthy to serve at a summer barbecue, this three bean and corn salad recipe is a refreshing alternative to potato or pasta salad. It’s flavorful and filling, and like many Mediterranean recipes, it comes together quickly. It’s a delicious salad recipe on its own, but it also goes nicely with tortilla or pita chips instead of salsa. This yummy recipe tastes delicious immediately after making it, but if you have a few hours to refrigerate after preparing, the flavors come together even more for a healthy, tasty snack or side dish perfect for entertaining.
