Homemade Salsa


Homemade salsa is a favorite in our house.  If someone spies a few of the ingredients on the counter they always say the same thing ... OOOH, are you making salsa?  I got the recipe years ago and it is a easy thing to make the day before and keep in a glass container with a lid for a weekend, trip to a friend's house, or even a trip to the lake.  We love it so much.
 
  
I am a sucker for an easy recipe that packs a punch and this is one of those good ones.  The ingredients are easy to keep on hand for when you need to make a batch, and it is easy to make and share.  I love the idea of making a double batch and then gifting it to others in a ball jar with a bag of your favorite chips.  It is a crowd pleaser for sure. 

I am telling you it is so easy to make ... 

1 can of Rotel tomatoes, do not drain
1 can of corn, drained (you can use left over corn on the cob as well)
1 can of black beans, drained
1 8 oz bottle of Wishbone Italian dressing
1 bunch of cilantro, chopped and stems removed
1 bunch of green onions, chopped fine (more if you like)
2 ripe avocados, chopped (keep the seed)
1 t of kosher salt

Mix all ingredients together.  I mix it all and then add the avocado the day we are serving it to make sure it is fresh.  I also put the avocado pit in the bowl to keep the avocado green. I think it is best made the day before to let all the flavors marry!


When I make it I crave Mexican food so I make it when we can have tacos, taco bowls, nachos, and taco salads.  The last in the bowl is the most coveted in our house.  It is really so yummy!


And don't forget this margarita recipe! (ps. it's strong!)
 

Happy Friday ...
