Favorite Friday Recipe: Corn Salsa

My cooking skills always decline in the summer and I've been searching for easy, light and fresh recipes to add to the rotation.  Corn salsa is B's favorite, using it to top a burrito rice bowl or serve on the side with grilled chicken.  Add some black beans and you have an amazing corn and bean dip as well!  The freshly squeezed lime helps keep it light and refreshing.  What are some of your favorite summer recipes?

Corn salsa (+ bean dip)

  • 15 oz. cans black beans (add if you want the bean dip)
  • 2 peeled, seeded and diced tomatoes (cherry tomatoes work great as well)
  • 1/2 bag frozen sweet corn
  • about 1/2-3/4 cup cilantro chopped
  • 2 jalapenos chopped
  • 1/2 red onion chopped
  • 2-3 fresh limes 
  • salt to taste

  • Chop up cilantro, jalapenos, red onion and tomatoes (a food processor is amazing for this)
  • Add black beans, corn
  • Squeeze lime juice in, mix and add salt to taste
  • Enjoy!
