Black Bean and Corn Salsa #SundaySupper Unprocessed

Black Bean and Corn Salsa #SundaySupper Unprocessed

I feel so grateful that I can truly say that I love my job as a teacher. Not only do I get to spend my days amongst positive, supportive people, fun (albeit sometimes challenging) toddlers and three groups of Lower Elementary students who are always hungry for a snack - even though they have to make it themselves in my Home Ec class! Our projects these days have all been about using what you have, where you are - keeping costs and fuss to a minimum while maximizing nutrition and flavour. Over the last month a few new tastes made it on to the kids' radar, but by far my (and my coworkers') favourite was this fresh Black Bean and Corn Salsa.br /br /I was originally inspired to make this tangy, veggie-heavy dip by the bounty of local corn leftover from a school "Corn Roast" fundraising dinner. Since our garden at the time was still churning out tomatoes and peppers by the bucketload, it was a natural application for me, since aside from the onion, black beans and limes, there was nothing to buy (apart from a bag of corn tortilla chips for serving - I knew the kids would inot/i take as kindly to topping cucumber rounds or simply using a spoon like I did). A batch of this salsa was decimated by each class of 10 (plus myself and my assistant), but under normal circumstances it would last a good week or so in the fridge too. I know I made another batch later on that my mom and I enjoyed mixing into pasta or rice, rolling into tortillas and (in the case of mom) mixing into taco-spiced ground beef for a quick weeknight dinner. br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="https://www.flickr.com/photos/reid-bee/15241636837" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;" title="Black Bean and Corn Salsa by Sarah R, on Flickr"img alt="Black Bean and Corn Salsa" height="240" src="https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2944/1524163683774ba522bb7c.jpg" width="320" //a/divbr /Using the "Kitchen Test" by Andrew Wilder of a href="https://eatingrules.com/the-kitchen-test/" target="blank"Eating Rules/a as our guidebook this week, the #SundaySupper group is embracing an unprocessed lifestyle today.
