Great for the 4th

July 2, 2012

Between all the baking I did for the birthday extravaganza and the summer craziness, I haven’t spent much time in the kitchen lately. A few weeks ago I made a southwestern black bean salad from my favorite website Skinny Taste. It was awesome and very much like a “salsa” my mother-in-law makes. So this time I made Sandy’s Salsa which has all the same ingredients but a little different spin. It’s an easy dish that is great for the summer (light and cool). It can be a dip or a salad.


Sandy's Salsa
Recipe type: Appetizer
Prep time: 
Total time: 
  • 2-15oz black beans (rinsed and drained)
  • 1-17oz frozen corn
  • 2 large tomatoes
  • 1 large avocado peeled and diced (I put in two)
  • 1 small onion diced (I used red)
  • ⅛-1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves
  • 2 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • kosher salt and pepper
  1. Mix in large bowl. Cover and refrigerate over night. Prior to serving, check and add salt, pepper and lime.


It has some of the kids’ favorite ingredients – black beans, corn and tomatoes!  Add some baked chips and they are in heaven.  They barely even realize that they are eating a really nutritious meal!  Thanks Nonny!!!
