Calico Salad

Calico Salad This is a great end-of-the-week salad, when your fresh produce supplies may be low. All it takes is a couple of canned items and one bell pepper, and you will have a crisp salad everyone will enjoy.

Serves 4.


  • 1-15 oz can corn
  • 1-15 oz can kidney beans
  • 1 medium bell pepper
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp salad oil
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 tsp honey or agave nectar
  • 1/2 tsp prepared mustard
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp red pepper flakes


  1. Using a fine sieve, drain the corn and kidney beans. Rinse well and drain again. Finely chop the bell pepper.
  2. In a medium salad bowl, mix the corn, kidney beans and bell pepper.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining ingredients. Pour over salad and toss. Serve immediately, or refrigerate several hours. Toss again before serving.
