This super easy salad is a fantastic vegan main dish for those summer days (or when you want to invoke a little summer indoors). A quick saute of gourmet heirloom beans in Amanda Frietag's Chica Adobo Seasoning delivers a savory, spicy kick. This whole recipe comes together in less than 10 minutes for a meal that will even satisfy the meat eaters at the table.
Gourmet heirloom beans meet heritage corn in a Mexican inspired salad that will be the star of your next back yard barbecue or taco Tuesday.
