Black Bean and Red Pepper Salsa

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Kumquat the Cats fr

Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. No tomatoes in here, but full of traditional salsa taste. Can be served as a side dish or salsa dip with pita toasts. From The Jewish Vegetarian Year Cookbook. I have not tried this recipe yet.

WHipped this up to have for lunch. Never thought of adding wine to salsa before, it was good! I used roasted red pepper strips instead of reg bells, just wanted to see. The beans, peppers, avocado, and wine all taste so good! Thanks for a new idea!
