Summer is Here

Every time I make Cowboy Salsa someone asks for the recipe. There are many versions out there. This one is from a dear Momma friend who's recipe calls for cumin. It lends a unique and addictive flavor. Guaranteed.

Cowboy Salsa

1 15 oz. can black beans (rinsed)

1 15 oz. can sweet corn (drained)

1 med. jalapeno (seeded and finely chopped)

4 Roma tomatoes (chopped)
1 yellow, orange or red bell pepper (diced)

1 small purple onion (diced)

1 avocado (diced)

1 tsp. cumin

2 Tbs. olive oil

1/4 cup lime or lemon juice

1 tsp. salt
2 cloves minced garlic
1/3 cup cilantro

Mix all ingredients, except avocado, together in large bowl. Add avocado right before serving. Tastes best after ingredients have had time to marinate a few hours but can be served immediately.

Great with tortilla chips and fabulous over grilled chicken, pork or fish.

Mmmm! I've been looking for a good salsa recipe, what with my tomatoes growing and all. I'll have to share some with you when they're ripe. :) We have yellow pear, roma, beefsteak, better boy, and some seedlings which I'm quite unsure of.
