KOO Mixed Bean and Salsa Salad - recipe

KOO recipe and image

Last year I was so lucky to be invited to a KOO media event, where we were introduced to all the new KOO options available on the shelf. I now never walk past the vegetable can section in a supermarket. My favourite is the KOO Black Beans in Mexican Style Sauce. It is such a versatile can to have in the cupboard. Great as is, or in bowls and wraps. As a vegetarian, it is great to bring along when friends or family forget about your food preferences.

Please let me know where you see it on the shelve? (It is not always available)

I have made the KOO Mixed Bean and Salsa Salad a couple of times. When I could not find the KOO Black Beans with Mexican Style Sauce, I used normal KOO Blacks beans with a coconut sauce mixed with Mexican spices. Not as nice as the original, but it also works!

This is a great summer salad, as is, or added to wraps and bowls.


Serves 4 -6


1 can (410g) KOO BAKED BEANS IN TOMATO SAUCE (or your favourite flavour of KOO BAKED BEANS)
1 can (410g) KOO WHOLE KERNEL CORN IN BRINE, drained
2 tomatoes, diced
1 green pepper, finely diced
1 red onion, finely chopped
½ cucumber, diced
Fresh coriander, finely chopped
1 avocado, peeled and diced
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
45ml (3 tablespoons) olive oil


1. Toss together KOO BAKED BEANS, BLACK BEANS, WHOLE KERNEL CORN, tomatoes, red pepper, red onion, cucumber, and coriander. Add the avocado last, so as not to make it too mushy.
2. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper, drizzle with olive and toss lightly. Refrigerate before serving.

So yum!

The new KOO varieties are worth checking out. This was gifted to us on the day.
