The Mexican salad is a classic summer dish, based on tuna, corn and beans, very easy to make; perfect for when you are hungry but with few ideas. A recipe that everyone likes because it is nutritious and fresh at the same time, perfect for the warmer season, but above all useful to use and finish various canned food that perhaps has been lying in the pantry for a while. To make this salad a complete single dish you can accompany it with slices of toasted bread or with boiled or steamed rice; bring it to the sea or to work and you will not regret it. So let’s see how to make the Mexican salad.

Preservation

Mexican salad can be preserved in the refrigerator for 1-2 days, tightly closed in an airtight container. If you prepare it to bring it to the sea or to the office, consider seasoning it as late as possible, even better when serving, so that the vegetables remain crunchy.
