What you may not know about me is that I hate to cook. Baking I enjoy, cooking is torturous.
This winter was a little hard on my waistline, so I have decided to strive to make more things homemade with healthier ingredients. My stipulations are that they are recipes with fewer than ten ingredients and take less than ten minutes to make.
This weekend I put together one of my favorites. This recipe is so simple and delicious. And, it is so healthy that I don’t even count the calories when I eat it!!
Here’s what you need to make this perfect summer treat:
1 can black eyed peas
1 can black beans
1 can white corn
1 large green pepper (chopped)
5 roma tomatoes (diced)
1 bunch green onion (chopped)
8 oz. Italian dressing (I use the fat free)
Mix it all together and you have the perfect accompaniment to baked Tostitos scoops or whatever kind of chip you prefer!! Serves many!! (It is hard to stop eating, so if you are watching your salt intake you may want to take it easy on it).
My summer veggies are off to a great start and the next time I make this I am thinking I will have fresh veggies to use!
This salsa garden is probably already to big for its container and I am thinking I may have to do some transplanting.
I get so excited when I see the first veggies of the year! Sometimes I add a jalapeno to this recipe to give it a little kick.
I am always looking for great recipes that fit into my criteria. If you have anything that you love and would like to share with me please pass it on!! It would be so appreciated!!
Have a great week!
