Summer Salsa

MENTAL STATUS: "Anxious". I only have one day left until the summer break. Eeek.

I'm still tired from yesterday's field trip to play miniature golf. There were only 16 kids but it felt like 66 kids, if you catch my drift...

Anyhew, time is short today, but I wanted to share a really great (and healthy) summer dip. (The one I brought to Jimmy Buffet)

Southwestern Salsa:

1/4 cup fresh lime juice (2 limes)
3 tBsp olive oil
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups corn (3 ears) but I used frozen and thawed at room temp
1 c grape tomatoes, halved
1/2 c chopped cilantro
1/2 c chopped red onion
1/2 c diced canned tomatoes w/ green chiles, drained
1 (15oz) can of black beans, rinsed and drained

**combine first 4 ingredients in a med bowl; stir with whisk. Add corn and remaining ingredients; toss well. Cover and chill for about an hour.

Serve with those Tostitos "Scoops".

That sounds fab! I love anything like that with corn and black beans. Plus, cilantro is one of my favorite herbs.

Oh, that sounds so good! Thanks for sharing! I'm thinking it would go great with strawberry margharitas. :)

Sure glad you survived the golf field trip. I'm sure that I would never chaperone 16 kids unless there were 16 adults.

That sounds nummy!
