Fresh Corn & Black Bean Salad with Harissa, Hummus and Flatbread

I’m loving all the new season corn on the cob around at the moment. I’m seeing such a gorgeous range of recipes appearing.

Simple ways to char your corn and amazing fresh corn salads.

Like this one – a chunky salad with fresh sweetcorn, black beans, some veggies, lots if herbs and a zingy but creamy harissa dressing. Simple and super healthy.

I’ve served it with creamy hummus and my favourite flatbreads, as I love the textural combination of beans and veg with the super creamy hummus.


  • This salad works well is any of the following veg; peppers, courgette, mushrooms, aubergine, beans.
  • And the bean mix is completely adaptable – try chickpeas, kidney beans, butterbeans.
  • Any dips work well or nut based cheese
  • Absolutely delicious with fresh homemade soda bread

I really hope you love this delicious dish as much as I do; make sure to post and tag with @rebelrecipes #rebelrecipes if you make this dish so I can see and repost your gorgeous creations!
