Black Bean Salsa

We call this a salsa, but honestly, we’d be doing you and the recipe both a disservice if we didn’t point out its limitless potential. Toss with some greens: hey presto, lunch! Top your favorite fish with it and shove it in a taco shell: awesome fish and bean tacos! Scoop it up with whole grain chips: game night is covered. Shove it in an omelet: you’ve just managed to add veg to your breakfast. Stir it into brown rice with a little topping of avocado: easy burrito bowl. The real question is what can’t you do with it?
