Raw Veggie and Black Bean Salad

This is another quick salad where there is no cutting required. In the produce section buy a package of fresh cut up stir fry veggies. A nice combination is one that has broccoli, cauliflower, green/yellow/red peppers, snow peas, celery, carrots, and onions. Of course you can choose your veggies of choice but be sure to get a nice full package. Add this to a drained and rinsed can of black beans. I used 1 -15 oz can to one package of veggies. Then season with dried spices such as garlic and onion powder, minced garlic, salt, pepper, and parsley to taste. Add extra virgin olive oil and either a balsamic or a red wine vinegar to moisten or to taste. Mix and enjoy. The one thing I love about this recipe is that you do not need to add a grain such as pasta or rice to make it fuller. If you eat a nice bowl of veggies and beans you will find yourself full.

Thank you for coming to my blog. Please come back again soon.

Song of the Rose
For Zeus chose us a King of the flowers in his mirth,
He would call to the rose, and would royally crown it;
For the rose, ho, the rose! is the grace of the earth,
Is the light of the plants that are growing upon it!
For the rose, ho, the rose! is the eye of the flowers,
Is the blush of the meadows that feel themselves fair,
Is the lightning of beauty that strikes through the bowers
On pale lovers that sit in the glow unaware.
Ho, the rose breathes of love! ho, the rose lifts the cup
To the red lips of Cypris invoked for a guest!
Ho, the rose having curled its sweet leaves for the world
Takes delight in the motion its petals keep up,
As they laugh to the wind as it laughs from the west.
