Black Bean and Corn Salsa

I should have posted my recipe for Black Bean & Corn Salsa yesterday—it was Cinco de Mayo after all!  But with finals coming up, any thoughts of celebrating (and posting) had to be limited.  Chips and salsa, yes; Margaritas, no.

Eat a rainbow!

Although I’ve never made it before, this salsa has been a staple at family events for ages.  It was my sister’s go to potluck dish– until she stopped eating beans. Noooo! 

So, since it was a favorite of mine, I figured I better take over.

Great snacking!

I made the salsa from her recipe, but couldn’t help adding a few things.  First, I minced up a garlic clove (having enjoyed that in my recent Portuguese Tuna Salad), then tossed it in with a little cumin for some heightened flavor.  Finally, in my best add-a-veggie manner, I diced a red pepper and threw that in too.

Up close!

Since I’m trying to eat local this year, the red and jalapeno peppers came from my freezer.  While most frozen fruits and vegetables can’t be used like fresh, I’ve had some luck with raspberries and blueberries, so decided to live dangerously and experiment. 

Verdict?  Yes, you can chop up frozen peppers for a salad just fine! 

Happy (belated) Cinco de Mayo.
