I threw this recipe together quickly for my "A Muse Schmooze" get-together with the Longmontinas.
The group is designed to push each other to finish started projects (from knitting to novel-writing). Mostly we just drink wine, eat cheese and make sarcastic jokes. So awesome.
Cantaloupes were practically being given away at Safeway today, so I picked some up and improvised something that would be bright and summery to celebrate summer's almost end.
What you'll need:
~1 red onion
~1 small cucumber
~2 roma tomato (firm)
~1 bunch of cilantro
~2 serrano peppers
~juice of 2 limes
~1 can of black beans, drained and washed
~Salt to taste
Dice everything (except the beans). Toss with beans, lime juice and salt and refrigerate a few hours (to let the lime seep in).
Serve with blue corn chips. Should go well with a Mexican beer or an apple-y Chardonnay.
Makes two party-dip-bowl-sized servings.
