Black Bean & Avocado Salsa

This recipe is almost... embarrassingly easy. I get so many requests for the recipe, though, so I decided it would be a great addition to my blog.

You will need:
3 ripe avocados
1 red onion
3-4 tomatoes
juice of 4 limes
1 bunch of cilantro
4 ears of fresh corn (or 1 can of golden corn)
1 can black beans, rinsed
Fresh jalapeno or serrano pepper for an extra kick (optional)
Italian dressing seasoning packet
Salt & pepper to taste

Okay so the instructions are as follows... chop the tomatoes, onion, cilantro & avocado and put into a bowl. Add the corn, black beans, & lime juice. Use Italian dressing seasoning packet and salt and pepper to taste... and that's it! If you let it sit in the fridge for about an hour, it allows the flavor to come out better.

For this batch of salsa, I was especially lucky to be able to use mostly produce that was in season:

Delicious, red tomatoes

Fresh corn on the cob

Crisp red onion...

All locally grown!

And then there was the fresh cilantro, lime, and avocado from the grocery store... I guess everything can't be in season at once.
