100 grams of canned corn

a tablespoon of lemon juice

4 tablespoons olive oil

Method of preparation:

1. Cook the beans in boiling salted water for 4-5 minutes. Then put it in a bowl with cold ice water, also for a few minutes. This operation is valid only for those who froze the beans without scalding it. If you take it from the store ready frozen, there is no need for this operation.

Salad recipe with chicken, corn and beans

I've been asking about recipes lately, so I thought I'd go back to our blog post & # 8211 at some point I felt like they were so simple that everyone knows them, so that I stopped. It seems that this simplicity is their advantage :).

Salad with chicken, corn and beans it's one of my favorite recipes, it's not 100% summer, because I use beans and corn from the jar (to make things simpler). It's not very healthy, especially in the jar version, but it's simple and I don't do it too often.

Salad with chicken, corn and beans

Ingredients for chicken salad, corn kernels and beans

Here you have ingredients for about 3 servings (we ate at a table with another salad, oriental & # 8211 of which we had more, this salad being a kind of left-overs, and another as a unique dish):

  • about 300-350 grams of pre-cooked and finely chopped chicken (I had a breast, I didn't weigh it),
  • a jar of beans (I had a mixed one, with beans in 3 colors + chickpeas) or a cup of boiled beans,
  • a jar of corn (I always buy of it, which says it is not genetically modified, now & # 8230),
  • the leaves of a medium salad,
  • an onion (it's optional, I like the red one),
  • oil, lemon juice or vinegar, salt and pepper

How I prepare the salad

Here things are as simple as can be and it depends a lot on your preferences, but if I still took pictures, I say I'll show them to you.

So, I chopped the chicken first, washed the beans and corn (in the version in which I boiled them, I would have prepared them the day before, to have time to cool), I put them in the salad bowl:

Beans, corn and chicken pieces

I then added the onion, which I had previously cut into juliennes and kneaded with salt and a little vinegar. I also added salt and pepper (sometimes I add half a hot pepper, I think it goes with this combination):

Add salt, pepper, onion & # 8230

It's almost ready. We mix!

& # 8230 and we prepared the lettuce on the plate where we were going to eat. I break it every time, it seems to keep its properties better if we don't use a knife:


I then put the salad I prepared over the lettuce and that was it. Good appetite!

Chicken salad with corn and beans

Recipe costs

Let's talk about the financial part a bit, although I don't know exactly how to appreciate, having a chicken that I gave 12 lei, from which I used the breast, boiled in the green bean soup that I prepared (I have the thighs prepared on them on my cast iron skillet with grilled vegetable salad next to it).

I will put 7 lei for the chest, I think it's okay, it probably should have been even less. If we took it separately, it would definitely cost more.

  • 7 lei chicken breast
  • 2.5 lei for corn
  • 3.5 lei beans
  • 0.5 lei onion
  • 2 lei salad
  • 0.5 lei spices

Total: 16 lei, pretty much everything up. Which does not make it the cheapest tooth recipes (for us they meant 3 servings, about 5.5 lei / serving, there could be two, but certainly taken ready prepared would have cost much more.

Italian Salad with Red Beans and Corn

Recipe of Italian salad it can be prepared in any season because we can find any kind of vegetables and fruits at the supermarket, regardless of whether it is their season or not. Salads inspired by Italian cuisine are salads full of vitamins prepared from low-calorie ingredients, healthy and very easy to prepare.

I prepared Italian salad from a combination of different types of lettuce, spinach and arugula, to which we added cherry tomatoes, boiled corn (canned), boiled red beans and a boiled egg. There are no rules about proportions, it is enough to have imagination.

In order to save time and effort, we can buy ready-to-wash salad bags from the supermarket.

For the Italian salad recipe I used a dressing made of balsamic vinegar, olive oil, fresh basil, salt and freshly ground pepper.

The secret to a really fresh and tender Italian salad is to dry the leaves. We wash them well, put them in a strainer to drain the water and then dry them with kitchen paper. I prefer to dry the salad in a spinner: it is a plastic strainer, which rotates by hand in a large bowl, shaking the water from the leaves.

It is good to break the lettuce leaves by hand, into larger pieces, so the salad will have volume and a beautiful appearance. If we still want to cut the salad with a knife, it must be very sharp so as not to crush the leaves and they lose their taste and vitamins.

Washing and drying the salad a centrifuge is very helpful. Chop it and transfer it to a large bowl. Add red beans, spelled, olives and sliced ​​onions.

*As mentioned above, you can replace spelled with whatever wax is to your liking. You can opt for brown rice, millet, buckwheat, wheat, amaranth, quinoa, kamut, barley. There is a great variety to choose from, any of them goes perfectly in this salad.

Make a dressing of salt, lemon juice and olive oil. Pour it over the ingredients in the bowl and mix gently. Lettuce with beans and spelled is ready and can be eaten immediately. Good appetite!
