I love cilantro. Period. So much I stopped at my grocer on the way on home today at lunch just to buy a bunch. I was in the mood for some tasty Black Bean Salad. And I needed cilantro. We can grow cilantro on the deck for about a month during the summertime. After that, the heat just dries it up - literally. I have intentions of growing cilantro in these cute little terra cotta pots at my kitchen window but the plan has yet to be executed.
And I don't think I was the only one in the house today loving cilantro and the Black Bean Salad. I wrapped a serving of it in a whole wheat tortilla for my lunch and shared over half of it with the Two year old (who had ALREADY eaten His lunch!). Then Big Guy enjoyed a bowl as well.
Super great lunch. Healthy for you. Fast to prepare. Beautiful colors. And leftovers are even better. Eat with chips, as a burrito or a side. I only used yellow and orange peppers and omitted tomatoes. It's even better if you can make it the night before and let the flavors "marry" together. Try it - you might like it!
