Black Bean and Tomato Salad


By Lori Taylor

We partnered with NatureSweet® and the Military Produce Group to bring you this recipe for Black Bean and Tomato Salad. 

You know what they say, variety is the spice of life. Salads come in lots of different varieties — they don’t just have to be a bed of lettuce with veggies on top. Black Bean and Tomato Salad is a unique salad that combines NatureSweet Cherubs® tomatoes, black beans, corn, and green onions. It is topped with a sweet balsamic dressing with a hint of heat.

This salad packs up and travels well. We love it for work lunches or as a dinner on-the-go. It’s also a great side salad on Taco Tuesdays!
