Easy to Make, Impossible to Resist

Creating this delightful dip is a breeze. Just follow these simple steps:


  • Black Beans: one 15 oz can, drained and rinsed
  • Corn: one 15 oz can of whole kernel sweet corn, drained (but not rinsed to retain its sweetness!)
  • Feta Cheese: 1 cup crumbled, or a block of feta crumbled by hand
  • Red Bell Pepper: ½ cup finely diced
  • Green Onion: ½ cup sliced
  • Cilantro: ¼ cup chopped (Alternatively, you can try parsley if you’re not a fan of cilantro)


  1. Start by opening the canned beans and corn. Rinse the beans before adding them to the bowl, and drain the corn.
  2. Wash and chop the bell pepper, green onions, and cilantro. Add them to the bowl.
  3. Crumble in the feta cheese.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and sugar until the sugar crystals dissolve. Pour this dressing over the bowl of ingredients.
  5. Mix everything together well, then refrigerate the dip for an hour to allow the flavors to meld.
  6. Grab your favorite tortilla chips, dip away, and enjoy!
