Fiesta Rice Salad ( All You Magazine)

 

 

In all honesty, this recipe was at the bottom of the page of another recipe I was making. hehehe. It caught by eye, and I just happened to have EVERYTHING that the recipe called for :) So I thought, why not! I

 

knew the girls love rice whenever I make it. Both of them won’t get out of my tomato garden in the summer. Little D would eat a whole bowl of guacamole if I let her. And corn….. my girls love corn!!! The only thing they hadn’t had before were the black beans.

 

The beautiful color of the salad really appealed to the girls. With her first bite, Big D gave me a thumbs up!! (where the heck was the camera!) This is a quick, easy salad that would go great with any meal.
