I tend to only try recipes that have been recommended to me by friends or family, or that I've seen demonstrated on telly. Sure, I could be accused of lacking adventure and playing safe in the kitchen, but I like it when I can be assured of a win!
Lindsey of All Things Bright and Beautiful recently posted about her favourite 'dip' and I was completely confused and intrigued by her mix of ingredients. Such a random combination, but I was willing to take the punt on her recommendation.
Black beans must be common in the US, but they're hard to find locally. Luckily I came across some at Lucia's, my local gourmet food deli
Well, the hunt was worth it as the dip was a winner sure enough! So quick and easy to put together and completely "moreish". I wanted to eat it by the spoonful! I served it with chilli and lime tortilla chips which were a great match.
Black bean, feta and coriander salsa/dip/thing
This makes enough for about 3-4 people for nibbles, but the measurements can be varied according to your tastes and how much you need
1 can of drained black beans
2 sticks chopped spring onion
chopped coriander (about half a bunch)
about half a block of crumbled feta cheese
red wine vinaigrette (use enough to have a shallow layer on the bottom)
- Put ingredients in dish in the order above
- Toss lightly before serving
- Serve with tortilla chips
