Throw It In a Salad! 5 Salad Recipes That Save You Money

Red Bean and Corn Salad

This salad isn't made from leftovers, but the ingredients are inexpensive and it couldn't be easier to put together. This recipe calls for a can of red beans and veggies, which can be bought fresh or frozen. Fresh will cost you a little more time and money, so you can opt to buy the frozen veggie medley of corn, onion and bell peppers. Lime juice, canola oil and a little cumin make for a tasty dressing.
