Spicy Summer Salad

Last night's side...
Combine whole-wheat bowtie pasta (cooked al dente) with Jane's Salsa (recipe below). Drizzle with olive oil when combining.

Jane's Salsa
3 tomatoes, chopped
1/2 cup red onion, chopped
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
3 cloves garlic, grated or diced
1/2 can black beans, rinced
1/2 cup frozen corn
1 t garlic powder
1 t red pepper flakes

Combine tomato, onion, cilantro, and garlic.

Rince black beans and combine in pan with frozen corn. Cook over medium heat, sprinkling with garlic powder and red pepper flakes. Cool, and add to mixture.

Drizzle with lime juice and spinkle with coarse salt. Allow flavours to combine fridge for at least 2 hours before serving, ideally overnight.


  1. Jane:

    This is not in fact Jane's spicy salad...this is whole wheat pasta combined with Lindsay's Fiesta Salad. F.Y.I.

  2. I was unaware that you hada Fiesta Salad. Maybe we will have to have a test test at the cottage in PEI :)

    Chocolate and Vanilla Icecream topped with fudge. I don't lie. Heaven in a cup!!

  4. I have seen the Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwiches, but I was unaware of the cups with fudge. I must look into that :)

    Why hasn't anyone come out with a light version of Cotton Candy Ice Cream? Few things make me as happy as that...

  5. I made this recipe last night, except I forgot the garlic, it was good even without the garlic, but it needed something more, I'll put some garlic in the leftovers.

  6. Glad to see someone reads my blog -and tries my recipes!

    You have got to try the muffins I posted today. They are my current fave.

    I Emailed your mom about a website for nutritional information - thought it might be the kind of thing a Home Ec teacher would know about. :)
