Rainbow in a Cup
You may have heard of rainbow in a cup? If not it’s rainbow colored jello layered in a cup.
This salad is like rainbow in a cup only better. And healthier. And it’s so good you want to eat it in a bowl not a cup.
The only problem with this rainbow salad is that it’s missing blue (and indigo if we are going to get technical). I just couldn’t think of anything blue to put in it except blueberries and that wouldn’t be acceptable. Nothing against blueberries. I just don’t see them going well with cumin or mustard. So pretend the black beans are really blue beans and you can have a full on rainbow inspired salad.
It’s a perfect salad to bring along to that Memorial Weekend BBQ this weekend.
