Cilantro, Black Beans and Peppers - what a marriage!

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!


  1. This is a great marriage of flavors. You described it well.
