I love veggies! I would rather eat veggies than a piece of cake. Ummmm… Not to say I don’t like cake…LOL But I digress….
I keep a full veggie bin in my fridge ALL THE TIME! So, when I am hungry for something different, I rummage around in my veggie bin, then create something. My black bean salad is one of those creations.
- Green bell pepper
- Red bell pepper
- Jalapeno pepper
- Sweet onion
- Black beans in can
- Salt, pepper and cumin
Wash veggies well! Chop all to preferred size. I like mine chopped small, but not fine. How much of each item you use is up to you and your taste. Rinse and drain the black beans, then add to your veggies. Season to taste. I use salt, pepper and cumin. Stir well and refrigerate. It is best after the ingredients “marry”. It’s good the same day, but the next day is better.
You can eat this any way you want. It makes a good salsa with tortilla chips. I prefer in a bowl…like ice cream…LOL. Sometimes I dress it up a bit. Here are some ideas:
I like it in a pita pocket too. This photo is with the hummus and sour cream. It is just as good with the veggies only.
Be brave in your kitchen. Explore, experiment and get wild. Veggies are not made to eat alone. Mix ‘em up and enjoy!
