Recipe: Salsa Salad

By Awalfitness

Salsa Salad, blue plate

Ingredients

  • 1 pint of grape tomatoes
  • 1 can of black beans
  • 1 can of red kidney beans
  • 1 can of whole corn kernels
  • 2 serrano peppers
  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • 4 cloves of fresh garlic
  • 1 bunch of fresh cilantro
  • lime juice
  • 1 bag of restaurant-style corn tortilla chips (optional)

Prep time: 15-20 minutes, depending on how fast you chop

  1. Rinse tomatoes, pepper, and cilantro
  2. Chop tomatoes into quarters, add to mixing bowl
  3. Finely chop garlic; add to mixing bowl
  4. Chop peppers into small chunks; add to mixing bowl. Smaller chunks make for a better, more blended final taste.
  5. Tear apart a small handful of cilantro; add to mixing bowl
  6. Top ingredients in mixing bowl with four quick squeezes of lime juice; let marinate for at least five minutes
  7. Rinse black beans, kidney beans, and corn kernels under cold water for three minutes; drain. Add beans and corn to storage container.
  8. Add contents from mixing bowl to storage bowl. Add four more squeezes of lime juice, then combine ingredients. Serve with a cup of tortilla chips and enjoy!

*The salad tastes best after being stored in the fridge overnight. But it is filled with great flavor and can be enjoyed right after prep.
