I can’t even tell you how much I love a recipe for homemade salsa… all kinds! I love traditional tomato based salsa, fruit-based salsas, all sorts of bean salsas, you name it. But lately this is hands down my favorite homemade salsa recipe. Let’s just say that I have been known to eat it straight with a spoon. For dinner. But it’s just as amazing the traditional way. You know, with chips and stuff.
6 roma tomatoes – chopped
1 avocado – diced
1 small red onion – finely diced
1 can black beans – drained and rinsed
1 can white shoe peg corn
1/3 C chopped, fresh cilantro
juice of 2 limes
1 TBSP white wine vinegar
1 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
Combine all ingredients in bowl and serve. It’s smart to make this recipe a day in advance, because that gives the flavors a chance to mingle together in the fridge for a day and it’s absolutely delightful. (But if you don’t make it in advance, it’s still pretty amazing on day one.)
If you’re looking for a great salad recipe, look no further than this very salsa. Just dump it on a bed of fresh romaine lettuce and you’re good to go. You can add some shredded chicken, or leave it as-is. It’s so satisfying, you don’t even need salad dressing. Does it get any healthier than that?!
