Corn and Black Bean Relish

January 21, 2011 | Beans & Grains, Popular, Vegetables

Looking for a simple side dish that you can serve with chicken, pork, or fish, something that works well as a salad, a vegetable, or a dip? This is your dish. Whips up in minutes, can be made virtually any time of the year, nutritionally sound, tastes great! I served it last night at an event I did beside Chicken Mole served over Creamy Polenta, and the lightness of the relish was a perfect complement to the heavier polenta and mole. Leftovers to make a great veggie quesadilla the next day, so guess what I’m having for lunch?!
