Pierogy And Black Bean Taco Salad

Contributed by: NAPSA

Pierogy Salads: A Cool Idea (NAPSA) - If you're interested in cooking less and eating more lightly during the heat of summer, salads can help. Simple to prepare-and refreshingly cool and crunchy-they're just right for the season.

As a change from everyday salads, try tossing convenient frozen Mrs. T's¨ Pierogies into your mix. Substitute these potato-filled pasta pockets for the spuds in potato salad, or combine them with sliced veggies and your favorite Italian-style dressing. Southwestern flavors such as salsa, corn, avocado and black beans are another great match for pierogies.

Low-fat pierogies are a perfect fit for a lifestyle that includes sensible eating and regular exercise.


  • 1 package (16.9 ounces) frozen Mrs. T's¨ Potato & Cheddar Cheese or Potato & Onion Pierogies
  • 1 1/4 cups diced fresh tomatoes
  • 1 cup prepared chunky salsa
  • 1/2 cup lightly cooked fresh, frozen or canned corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup diced avocado


Cook pierogies according to package directions; drain and rinse.

In a large bowl, combine pierogies, tomatoes, salsa, corn and avocado; toss to coat.
