Easy Bean Salad

Can I just say, this is one of my all time favorite salads?! I love it. You can use it as a main dish on a day that you are in a hurry or you can use it as a side salad to compliment a hamburger, a hot link, a sandwich or anything else you are cooking. My sister-in-law (who always cooks wonderful food), Mindy, gave me this recipe after she brought it to several of our family parties and I just couldn't get enough of it. I am sure it will quickly become a favorite of yours too...give it a try! Thanks Mindy for sharing your recipe!

Easy Bean Salad
2 cans corn, drained
2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained
2 cans red beans, rinsed and drained
2 c. cheese
1 chopped red onion (optional...my family doesn't all like onions, so I don't put them in)
1 bag of Frito (or generic style) corn chips

Dressing
1 c. Mayonnaise
1 c. Salsa (any that you like)

Mix beans, corn, onion and cheese together. Mix dressing in a separate bowl then add to bean mixture. Chill. Top with corn chips right before serving. 
* I like to add the chips individually, to each person's serving...that way if there are any leftovers the chips won't be in the salad to go soggy. 

Happy Cooking~
Julie
