- Toss to combine.
- Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to develop.
- When ready to serve add in avocado and toss gently making sure not to mash avocado. Serve immediately and enjoy!
Can you make Black Bean and Corn Salad ahead of time?
Yes! This is a great side dish or dip to make ahead of time. It will last about 2 to 3 days in the refrigerator. You will want to add the avocado when you are about to serve the salad.
Can you use fresh corn?
Yes! Fresh corn will taste just as great! Cook the corn on the cob on the stove top and cut off the corn kernels after it has turned a darker yellow.
