Yes this salad is Badass. It’s got Beets (Love em), Sweet Corn, Baby Black Beans, fresh Asparagus, Carrots, Peas and whatever you want in it. I myself switch it up, depending on what I have on hand at home, and what’s available at the Market, so feel free to do the same. You can add, or take away from the basic recipe below. Naturally this salad filled with nothing but vegetables, legumes, vinegar and Olive Oil is Super Healthy. The salad is absolutely delicious on its own, which I eat it this way, but also like to stretch it out and last me at least 3 or 4 days, so I might peel a hard boiled egg and eat it with the salad for a nice easy light lunch or dinner. 

This salad is a great side dish for any meat, chicken, or fish dish, so do use it this way. Make the best of it, always eat your vegetables, everyday and enjoy.






1 pound bag of Trader Joe’s frozen cooked Beets (or fresh Beets if you like)

4-6 ears Fresh Sweet Corn (cooked and cut from the cob) or 1 pound frozen Corn

1 -14 ounce can Black Beans ( I Love Trader Joe’s Baby Black Beans) drained & washed

1 pound fresh Asparagus (cut and cook in boiling water for 4 minutes & drained)

2 medium Carrots – peeled, dice 1/2″ thick and cooked in boiling water for 7 minutes

1/2 to 3/4 cup Frozen Peas, defrosted 

3/4 teaspoon each of Sea Salt & Ground Black Pepper (or to taste)

9 Tablespoons Olive Oil

2 tablespoons Red Wine or Cider Vinegar

1 Tablespoon Dijon Mustard

Defrost the Frozen Beets, and cut into 3/4 inch dice. Add to a large glass or ceramic mixing bowl. Add all of the rest of the vegetables to bowl and mix.

Add the Olive Oil, Vinegar, Salt, pepper, and Mustard to bowl and mix. You can serve immediately, or place in covered bowl in the refrigerator until you are ready to eat.
