I’ve been dreaming about this salad for weeks. Seriously. As I filled out my content calendar for the January, I typed in this post title. You see, several months ago I came up with the title and giggled at writing the word “hearty.” It was going to be January and super frigid and figured we would all want something hearty right about now.
The winter descriptive meant that I had to come up with something wintery. Which means one thing to me when it comes to salads… root vegetables. These are the things I dream about. How about you?
The intention was to add a can of black beans to this salad to add a pop of interest. But them I happened upon our very own community member’s salsa with black beans and corn… well, let’s just say that mixing that delicious salsa with ranch dressing takes this salad to the next level. The next atmosphere. The next galaxy.
Thanks for the idea, Helen.
May you all have a big bowl of hearty winter black bean salad and be filled with joy.
