Melissa's Cuisine: Chicken, Corn, and Black Bean Salad

Chicken, Corn, and Black Bean Salad

I was inspired to make this recipe after I saw one of my co-workers eating it.  We often talk about what we're eating for lunch, and he was showing me what his wife had made that day.  It looked delicious, so I asked him if he'd ask his wife for the recipe.  He thought she found it on Pinterest, and since I follow her boards, I figured I'd see if I could find it.  I was successful, and I'm glad I was! 

I made this recipe that night and took it for lunch the next day.  It is so easy to put together, and delicious.  I changed up the recipe a bit to suit my tastes, and I've added in diced tomatoes a few times that I've made it.  This is a perfect lunch for at work.

Chicken, Corn, & Black Bean Salad

Serves 2

1 chicken breast, cooked and shredded
1/2 cup frozen sweet corn
1/4 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
2 Tablespoon mayonnaise
1 Tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar (optional)

Combine chicken, corn, beans, mayonaise, vinegar, and sugar in a bowl. 

Serve in pita pockets.
