You know when you have no time to make anything, but want to make something anyway? Make this.  The things about this Salsa Salad is that it's extremely refreshing, filling, healthy in so many ways, and just great to snack on. I've seen many versions of this kind of salsa, but I feel that this one here really hits the mark! Plus, it doubles as both lunch and snack. It just makes your day that much better.

Summer Salsa Salad
1 1/2 cups black beans (you can either find them in the canned foods aisle (be sure to rinse these) or rehydrate your own according to package instructions)
1 1/2 cups frozen corn, thawed
1 bunch scallions, chopped
1 of each: red, green, and orange red bell peppers, diced
1 1/2 cup diced tomatoes (I prefer Roma as the flesh tends to be more firm)
1 cup of chopped pickled pepperoncini - note that the seeds contain the heat, so be careful as to how much you're including
1/3 cup Light Italian Dressing
salt and pepper to taste
Now, for the easiest recipe instructions you will ever receive: mix all the items together and allow to chill in the refrigerator for at least half an hour so that the flavours really come together. Enjoy with corn chips or with endive spears for a fresh change!

Flour Cup has undergone redesigning and is now back and better than ever! Now I have to admit that this blog, as I'm sure many are, is always going to be in the making, but I must say that I love the new look. I've also creates pages in the effort of making my foodie-love more useful to you! I am quite techno-challenged, but I hope to keep upgrading Flour Cup so that you can enjoy it, learn from it, and love it as much as I do.

Now after having said all of the above, I have to apologize for my lack of posts. It has been quite a busy term for me. I have been in the process of applying for my Masters' Degree (accepted!), of organizing various events on my campus, writing incredible amounts of papers, and am now getting ready to write final essays and exams. But even amongst this, I will post! How can I not when my blog is now so nice to look at?

But until I do post a recipe, here are some photos to anticipate what is yet to come.
