I’d like to introduce you to my favorite salsa made with black beans, corn, chopped bell peppers, tomatoes, pineapple, cilantro, and lime juice.   Those are very simple ingredients yet, when combined in this healthy dish, they create a burst of freshness, color, and flavor!

This dish is vegetarian, gluten-free, vegan, low in fat and low in calories.   It’s really tasty and filling (thanks to all the fiber).   It’s full of colorful vegetables, as you can see on the photos.  Sometimes I can eat just a bowl of this (and nothing else) for dinner and not be hungry. At other times, I like to add fish or shrimp. This dish is perfect on its own, it’s also great as a side dish.  If you make this just once, you will quickly realize that this is a really good recipe to have in your weekly or monthly recipe rotation!
