Summertime…and the cookin is easy!

19 July 2010 No Comments Print article Print article

Ahhh summertime –  ripe with farm fresh veggies, hot, humid days and warm nights that call for something easy and cool to make for dinner. Too hot to cook? How about planning your meal around Corn and Black Bean Salsa? This recipe comes to us courtesy of Toni D’Angelo, who cooks up many of the delicious meals at east coast retreats. It’s easy and quick, and can be used over fresh greens as a main meal, over rice, in taco shells, or as a dip. You can make it in the time it takes you to chop some tomatoes and an avocado. Simple and delicious!
