This yummy southern favorite is made with black beans instead of black-eyed peas. Serve with savory tortilla chips as a great party appetizer or serve on soft tacos with grilled or sauteed shrimp.

This fresh and zesty concoction also works well with grilled meats, fish, on top of a tasty burger or by itself with a cold beer.

It’s one of my favorite summer sides, but however, you decide to serve this summer delight, you can’t go wrong!
