Corn and Bean Salad To Go

You may have seen in my Organizing and Cleaning the Fridge post that I’ve been packing salads in mason jars for work lunches. I can’t believe it has taken me this long to make them! This week I made a new concoction. I am really excited to share this recipe with you because it’s inexpensive, easy to make and extra yummy. I hope you enjoy this as much as I am.
