Mexican Salad



Do you often look inside your fridge with no clue what to eat? Well I’m a newlywed who works in retail, with a husband finishing his engineering degree. We just bought our first home. This said, our budget is pretty tight. I’ve made it my responsibility to plan out meals that are affordable, healthy, simple, and tasty.

Today I looked in my fridge and noticed a half onion, a couple of tomatoes, and an avocado. After chopping them up, into the bowl they went. I threw in a can of black beans, a cup of frozen corn, seasoned it, and viola! I ended up with this delicious Mexican salad. Simple. Healthy. Affordable.

If that isn’t filling enough for you, feel free to add rice or put it in a tortilla with cheese and meat.
