Recipe by  Jen

“This is so easy and fast to make, and tastes amazing! Even my carnivorous boyfriend loves it. Serve cold as a mid-day salad, as a side dish, or serve warm as the main course. The thing I love most about this meal is its versatility. This is how I usually make it, but I just came up with it one day when wanting a quinoa, black bean, and corn recipe. Feel free to change to suit your preferences! I make it cheater-style with salsa, but it can easily be made with fresh or cooked veggies of your choice. It can be a cool summer salad, or a hearty warm winter dinner by the fire. This is the first of my recipes that I have shared.”

Doesn't get much easier than this! Very tasty and healthy. I used jarred salsa and cut the amount to about 12 oz. I also added fresh cilantro. It tasted a tad salty, but that could be remedied by using the fresh salsa. Thanks for sharing the recipe.



Added some chopped tomatoes. Delicious!



This was delicious, healthy, and probably the easiest dinner I've ever made! Thanks for sharing!
