Kids Cooking Recipe: Black Bean Corn Salsa Salad

Posted by the Mom (aka Kelly Biedny)

This recipe is great for older kids working on knife skills. Younger kids can measure out the olive oil, lemon juice and spices. Other skills that will be used when whipping up this delicious salad include can opening, rinsing and stirring.

You can serve this salad as is, or add some leftover grilled or broiled chicken. We serve it in soft taco shells with avocado and a drizzle of sour cream.

Happy Family Cooking Everyone!
