Completely Board Post #10: Corn & Chickpea Fiesta Salad

Veg-am's Completely Board - Vegan Month of Food 2014

 

I really love a good bean salad.  I have a separate Pinterest board for them.  But, for some reason, I never think to make them.  Since the purpose of the Completely Board theme is to use forgotten Pins, a bean salad it is.  And nothing sounded like more fun than the Corn and Chickpea Fiesta Salad with Cilantro Lime Vinaigrette from A Teaspoon of Happiness.

Corn & Chickpea Fiesta Salad

This is going to be short and sweet.  I followed the recipe.  The only tweak I made was to use roasted corn (the frozen stuff from Trader Joe’s).  It was simple to do and delicious to eat, especially the next day when the flavors had more time to meld together.  No single flavor was dominant, they all just blended wonderfully.

For some reason, I can only assume because the word “Fiesta” was in the title, my sister B and I both thought this was going to be a spicy salad.  It isn’t.  But, we agreed it would be good with a little taco seasoning mixed in the dressing on those days we want a little extra kick.

Another winning pin.  Another good pot luck dish.

    How funny is that! I love bean salads too, but rarely make them. When I’m at a party and they are Amanda-friendly, I fill my plate with them.

    Ha! Fiesta does sound like it should be spicy. Maybe they just meant colorful.
