Fun Friday – Black Bean Salsa

As part of an ongoing series, on Fridays A Beautiful Blog will bring you great recipes, book reviews, tips and ideas for making your life a little more fun. Enjoy!

Now that the weather’s cooling off, it’s a great time to be outside with friends and family. When we get together, one of my favorite things to make is this delicious Black Bean Salsa. It is super fresh and loaded with healthy veggies and great flavor. Try it with tortilla chips, serve it with tacos, or spooned over grilled chicken or fish. Or be like me and eat it straight out of the bowl! – Leslee Stewart
