One of my friends has made this for many-a-gathering! He’s always called it, Garden Salsa,” as it is a fresh medley of tons of veggies and it’s full of flavor! This is an ode to my friend of 13 years- Artie J!
- 3 tomatoes on the vine
- 1/2 red onion
- 1/2 orange pepper
- 1/2 yellow pepper
- 1/2 cup frozen corn – thawed
- 1/2 cup black beans – drained
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- cilantro (fresh or dried!)
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 1/8 cup vinegar
- juice of 1 lime
Finely dice your three tomatoes and peppers and combine in a medium or large sized bowl.
Add your seasoning! The salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, minced garlic and cilantro!
I used dried cilantro although fresh would be suuuch a great component to this Salsa!
The seasoning salt will be between the tomatoes and peppers and topped with the rest!
Toss in your black beans, red onion corn, – not pictured 🙁 – I only took a pic with the black beans – oops!!
Add the vinegar, oil and fresh lime juice and stir!
Give it a taste to see if it could use a bit more vinegar or not. It’s all in the taste buds!
Add chopped jalapeno if you like some spice – or instead of eating this salsa with tortilla chips, it would bring a nice, crisp taste to fajitas or tacos at home!
