The Best Zero Point Side: Mexican Black Bean and Corn Salad

September 30, 2018

I came up with this recipe out of pure desperation. I was starving. I didn't have any points left for the day. We needed groceries. Sometimes desperate situations lead to the best ideas. We had canned corn, black beans, salsa, and greek yogurt. Somehow my brain thought to put those things together. Thank you, brain.

I eat this nearly every day. Fun fact about me: I don't need a lot of food variety in my life. I could eat the same exact thing every day for six months before ever tiring of it. Savannah can barely tolerate left overs. Regardless of how often you'll make + eat this recipe, it is one to keep in your mind.

This past 4th of July we had a party at our house and we knew we had to make some Weight Watcher friendly sides for ourselves or we were going to be in trouble. I made a big batch of this black bean + corn salad and it was a huge hit. People even asked me for the recipe! That is the perfect WW recipe- one that is zero points AND you can serve to your non-WW friends + family and they will love it as much as you do.

Mexican Black Bean and Corn Salad Recipe
1 can black beans, drained + rinsed
1 can corn, drained
1/2 c salsa (no sugar added)
2 T non-fat Greek yogurt

1. Pour the beans + corn into a bowl.
2. Then add salt and mix it well.
3. Add salsa + greek yogurt. Mix.
4. Serve immediately or store in an air-tight container for up to 4 days.

I like to eat this cold but you could eat it hot. I would just heat all the ingredients except the greek yogurt, and add that last. 

You can add chicken to this as well. You could add this with rice + chicken in a tortilla. You could put it on lettuce. I have used this in a million different ways. But I mostly eat it just as it is as a snack or a side to a meal. It's great when you are hungry and don't have any points left or don't want to use points. Or just because you love it!
