Best Bean Salad Recipe

Best Bean Salad Recipe

  • Salad

Packed full of Protein!

  • Serves 6
  • Easy



One of the best bean salad recipes, i’ve ever made. It goes so well alongside almost any type of summer meal too!

Best Bean Salad Recipe

It is made with fresh onions, peppers, cucumber and two different types of beans.

That is all mixed with a can of creamed corn or canned corn along with parmesan cheese. 

absolutely delicious and is healthy because it is packed full of fiber and protein. 


  • Any type of bean really, I have used Kidney beans before too. 
  • Cubed roma tomatoes 
  • Cilantro
  • Avocado


My bean salad will last ruffly 3 days fresh. However if you add avocados or tomatoes etc to it. I would make sure it is eaten on the very day you make it!

This bean salad is tossed in the most delicious parmesan olive oil garlic sauce. 

You are going to love it!

The canned corn in this recipe, really helps to tie together the whole salad.

However, you can always use frozen corn in replace of that if you do not have it on hand. 

I like to make this bean salad at least once per month.

It will keep in my fridge for a few days and can serve a crowd easily.


  • Simply empty two cans of strained beans into a large bowl
  • Along with a chopped cucumber, onion along with red and orange peppers. 
  • A can of Creamed Sweet Corn or Corn
  • Then pour over the Paresame dressing 


Yes, packed full of feel good fiber, protein and nutrients. 


Today, I served this salad along with some Air Fried BBQ Pork Ribs. My recipe for the best homemade Air Fried BBQ pork ribs can be found here: Air Frye BBQ Ribs

REALLY though this salad can be enjoyed alongside just about any meal, think chicken, pork even steak etc.
