Black Bean and Corn Salad II
Positively ambrosial! We can't get enough of this fresh, flavorful salad--it's that good. Perfect alongside BBQ, grilled or roasted meats, or sandwiches. Also tastes great whether dressing is added in advance or just before serving. (You might try cutting the olive oil in half. Saves calories, and you can't tell the difference.)

Pumpkin Black Bean Soup
Needing a recipe for which I had all ingredients on hand, I snapped this one up right away. Unfortunately, it's one of those that lacks "oomph" when you follow directions to a T, but definitely warrants an upgrade with a few simple seasonings. After discovering that most of the raves came from cooks who doctored the recipe, I wanted to see how it came out as intended. Meh. It was bland and a bit too vinegary -- somewhere in the order of 2.5 stars. The addition of 1 tsp. each cumin and chili powder, plus letting it sit several hours before serving, helped bunches. And next time I'll only use 2 Tbsp. of vinegar. Thus doctored, I'd elevate it to a 3.5. I'm eating leftovers as I type, and it's even better a few days later, as it has thickened up nicely. I'd make it again--it's a good wintery soup. But it's not getting 5 stars from me. I save that for recipes I adore.

Shrimply Delicious Shrimp Salad
I just whipped this up for a quick lunch, and we love it! Rather than leave them whole, I roughly chopped the shrimp. I swapped out the 1/2 cup of onion and instead used 2 green onions Also, I cut the mayo to 1/3 c. (still plenty!) It was indeed "shrimply delicious" just seasoned with salt, but I decided to sprinkle in a little curry powder. YUM! I served it on a bed of salad greens, but it would make a great appetizer scooped onto cucumber rounds or crackers. And I'd also like to try it with diced avocado. Thank you, Nikijo!
