Summer Three Bean Salad

Summer is so great for picnics, potlucks and outdoor get togethers. I live for it. Light salads are the perfect thing to serve, especially ones that have no mayo so that they keep better in the heat. Let me tell you, this summer three bean salad fits the bill perfectly. The beans make it hearty and satisfying, but it really is light and refreshing with the lemon juice dressing. Best of all, it is so simple and quick to make!

First, I roasted the corn and cherry tomatoes. A dash of olive oil, some salt and pepper were all it took to flavor them before they went into the oven for 10 minutes.
Then I just tossed the roasted corn and tomatoes with lots of black beans, kidney beans and white beans. The final touch was to stir in fresh basil and the juice of two lemons. I let it sit in the refrigerator to chill for an hour to really let the flavors marry.

That was all there was to this yummy, summer perfect salad! It packs really well and easily for summer road trips, parties, beach trips, you name it. Hope you all love it, too! xoxo
