I have a great “transitional” recipe to share with you today. This easy bean and corn salsa is one of those all-purpose dips that’s great for summer cookouts as well as fall tailgating.
I acquired this salsa recipe from a neighbor at a backyard cookout years ago, and it’s positively addictive. It’s easy to make, but be sure to make it ahead of time so the flavors can fully blend together. The result is a pretty, chunky blend of crunch and flavor. If you love chips and pico de gallo, try this bean and corn salsa!
Dare I say this recipe is somewhat healthy? It’s full of fiber from the vegetables, and I always rinse my canned veggies to remove any salt from processing. You can cut the fat by using a light dressing instead of the regular version, too. This chunky salsa also tastes good over rice, and with fish.
