Sun, Summer & Salsa!
Jul 13, 2017
When I think of Summer…I think of Salsa!! With all the fresh summer produce in abundance it is easy to whip up a quick fresh salsa along with a few pantry staples you probably already have on hand!
One of my favorite salsa recipes is one I stole from my Momma!
She always makes her Black Bean Corn Salsa recipe for our family reunions and at backyard BBQ’s because it always seems to be a hit!!
So naturally I started making it for my summer gatherings and only tweaked it just a bit! I added sweet diced mango and lots of cilantro to jazz up the color and the flavors of this already awesome recipe. Enjoy!
