Recipe News: Fresh black bean and corn salsa
"Two things that appear on my dinner table just about every night in August, are corn and tomatoes.
This late summer duo is reaching it’s prime right now and I never tire of enjoying them on their own, or paired together in a multitude of recipes.
This week I’m turning to Mexico for inspiration for two recipes. The first is a zesty salsa and the second a salad recipe featuring tomatillos along with tomatoes.
Canned black beans form the backbone of the salsa recipe. The addition of fresh, diced tomatoes, corn, green pepper, jalapeno and fresh cilantro make this salsa filling, yet vibrant and flavourful.
This salsa is much more substantial than the variety that is made primarily with tomatoes. I like to serve this version with corn tortilla chips, or it can be the base on which to place a grilled piece of fish or chicken."
