Side dish-perfect to pair with lean meat for dinner, on its own for a snack or even in a wrap…or over rice, or over a bed of greens, you get it….endless possibilities!

Ingredients:

1 large can of low sodium black beans-rinse and drain (or cook and cool some non-canned… of course is the healthiest option)

1 med can sweet summer corn-rinse and drain (or fresh off the cob)

1 small avocado-diced

1 small peach-skin on and diced

1/4 of a mango-diced

1/4 of a small red onion-diced

2 tbsp. mango & lime salsa

2 tbsp. lime juice

1 tbsp. olive oil

Season generously with cilantro and  black pepper then a  dash of salt

Mix delicately but well and place covered in fridge for a least a few hours to chill and allow flavors to marry together.

 

Enjoy!!

Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Lettuce wraps! Love this idea and there are endless combinations you can prepare! Make it fun, think outside of the box…make them your own!

I used :

1 lb cubed chicken breast

1 c corn

1/4 c each onions, celery, carrots, silvered raw unsalted almonds

Seasoning for the mixture:

lime juice, cumin, Badia complete seasoning, cilantro,  parsley, ginger, crushed red pepper, pepper, garlic, 1/4 c lite sodium soy sauce (I would have made it spicier for sure with wasabi, Sriracha  and Red Hot if my son wasn’t eating it too-he handled the above flavors great though!)

I sautéed the chicken first with all the seasonings/juice/sauce and slowly added in the veggies and then spot checked for taste and added more of whatever I thought it needed. Total cook time 20 min. Wrap in iceberg lettuce and serve-I need a little help on my wrapping skills but that will come! Enjoy!!! xoxoxo-Alettuce wrap 3
