maybe i should keep it a secret.

i recently came across a recipe for a corn & black bean salsa here. i've probably made it at least once a week for the last month or so.... we love it, & so do our friends & family. it's been devoured at all of our latest get-to-togethers. the best part? the left-overs (if there are any) last for days in the fridge.

corn & black bean salsa

1 can of black beans drained
16 oz. of corn (canned, frozen, even fresh)
1 green pepper, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
1 cucumber (as much as you want, i used the whole thing), peeled & chopped
fresh cilantro (as much as you want), chopped
1 small bottle of kraft zesty! italian dressing

mix it all together, cover & let it chill in the fridge for about a 1/2 hour or so.
serve with chips or all by itself!

My mom makes a killer corn salsa. Always a hit. Wonder if it's the same? Can't wait to try this one.

I got this recipe from a friend at a potluck lunch. I started also adding scallions and tomatoes then substituted the Italian dressing for fresh salsa. SO yummy!

Well maybe you SHOULD have kept this a secret but I'm glad you didn't. It sounds wonderful and I will be giving it a try. Thanks for sharring it.

This is my first stop to your blog and I loved it.

I put a link on my blog for your swap and I noticed you are doing a give away. When you post about that I will link your give away also.

I'll be back now that I have found you!

Speaking of things to crave, I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who craves ice during pregnancy. That is all I want. A little Dr. Pepper on top wouldn't be bad. Where do you get your crushed ice? My 2 year old also visits the ice maker throughout the day and chomps along with me.

Kari said...

Hi Kelly!

I posted the recipe for the cupcakes over at my blog you said you'd like the recipe for.

TRS said...

Thanks for sharing!
I made it for our 'Jazz in the Park' outing last night.

Everyone loved it..
Everyone asked for the recipe.

As I was making it, my boyfriend said he'd never seen anything like that before (I had, so I knew it would be good) so I think he was a little scared. Certainly apprehensive. HE LOVED IT!!
