So let’s see how to make the Mexican salad.

How to prepare the Mexican salad

In a bowl mix the well-drained spanish beans with the red beans (1).

Drain the corn and add it to the beans (2).

Also add the washed and diced pepper (3).

Wash the tomatoes, cut them in half or in four (4).

Thinly slice the spring onion, drain the tuna and add them to the salad (5).

Season with oil and salt and serve the salad very cold (6).
