Today's smoothie: flat parsley, frozen strawberries, banana, orange juice
Here's a delicious and easy salad that's great for picnics, potlucks, and parties of all kinds. I'm making it this weekend for a Memorial Day visit with loved ones.
Salsa, Orzo, & Black Bean Salad
1 C orzo
One 15 oz can black beans, drained & rinsed
1 C canned corn (I use a 15 oz can, drained & rinsed)
1/2 medium green or red bell pepper, diced
1 C prepared salsa (I like Garden Fresh Salsa Company's Jack's Special, medium heat)
1/4 to 1/2 C fresh chopped cilantro
2-3 scallions, green parts only, finely sliced
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tbsp lemon or lime juice or more to taste
Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper to taste
Cook orzo until al dente according to package instructions. Drain and rinse in cold water. Combine rest of ingredients in large bowl. Done!
