I have been blessed with some very special people that have come into my life and my friend Bonnie is one of them. She is a strong, loyal, kind, fun person with a beautiful soul that always makes me laugh and just has this ability to bring a smile to my face. With that said, she also makes an awesome black bean salsa and I am going to share her recipe with you today.
Here is what you will need:
– 2 cans of Goya black beans drained and rinsed
– 1 can corn drained
– 3 maybe 4 (depending on size) plum tomatoes cored and diced
– 4 scallions sliced one inch into green
– 3 tablespoons olive oil
– 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
– juice of a fresh lime
– small handful of fresh chopped cilantro
– salt and pepper to taste
– big bag of Tostidos for dipping
Just want to add that I learned while making this with Bonnie that she is a Goya snob!!!
The beans must be Goya for this salsa to be good!! 😉
Here is what you need to do:
Rinse and drain your beans. Drain corn. Core and dice tomatoes. Chop up cilantro.
Slice up scallions one inch up into green and add to bowl.
Add olive oil, vinegar, lime juice, salt and pepper. Give a good stir. And there you have it!!
This is great as a salsa, but you can also serve it with almost anything. It is fresh and healthy and I am definitely going to make it the next time I make tacos for my family.
