Rainbow Scoops


2 15 oz cans black beans
1 11 oz can yellow and white corn
1 small orange bell pepper, chopped
1 small red onion, chopped
30 grape tomatoes, quartered
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 tsp jarred minced garlic
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 bag scoops style tortilla or corn chips

Drain and rinse black beans and pour into large mixing bowl. Drain and rinse yellow and white corn and add to bowl. Add the remaining ingredients (except the "scoop" chips) and mix until thoroughly combined. Either chill in the refrigerator and pack in a prepared, insulated thermos or pack in a container in an insulated lunch bag with a freezer pack. Eat by scooping with "scoop" chips.

Challenger's statement:

Your kids will love eating this chilled salad with scoop chips so much that they won't notice all of the nutrition hiding in it (or that blue is missing from the rainbow)!

(Any leftover salad makes an excellent side dish for grilled chicken or a yummy filling for a wrap sandwich.)

  1. Always read labels! Product ingredients can change without notice. Do not assume a recipe or product is safe for you. Contact manufacturers to confirm safety for your allergy needs.
  2. A check in a box on a recipe means you can make a recipe "free of" that allergen. You may need to use a substitution or alternative product to make that recipe safe for the allergies you are managing.
  3. If you need assistance with a recipe or ingredient substitution, post on our Food & Cooking support forums. You will receive personal help to alter a recipe to make it allergy-free for your child’s needs.
