Cool ~ Crisp~ and Yummy!!My idea of a good recipe is one that you can tailor to suit your own palate. Feel free to omit any item or toss in a few extras... strawberries? corn? fresh peas?
Prepare the following in a pretty serving bowl:
-1 can black beans rinsed I use organic no salt added
-1 can hominy rinsed or you can use rice
-1 jalapeno pepper seeded and minced
-diced red onion to taste Hubby's bowl has onion. Mine does not.
-1 portion of cilantro chopped How much is a portion? 1 loose cup or zero or anywhere in between. Mine has zero. Hubby has lots and lots. Did you know that they (the infamous they) have isolated a gene that determines how a person interprets the taste of cilantro? Your brain either says yummy or BLEH!!
- 1cup cherry tomatoes halved
- 1/2 small red, yellow, or orange sweet pepper diced
Combine the following and pour over the salad:
1/8 cup honey
2 Tbs olive oil
1-2 tsp cumin
juice from 1 large juicy lime
Toss and serve as a salad or as a dip for tortilla chips.
