Summer Salsa

Hi Friends!

Recipe time. Today I thought I’d share a fun little salsa recipe that I’ve been enjoying the past few weeks. When I hear salsa, I usually think tomatoes…but in the summer, with so much fresh produce around, sometimes it’s fun to think outside the box and push the limits of the term “salsa” a little bit!

This summer salsa combines fruits, veggies and beans and it’s fabulous with chips, on burgers or served over grilled chicken or pork!

It’s basically a combination of all my favorite things about summer and I’m fairly certain I could eat it all day, every day!

Here’s how you make it:

Serves: 4 cups
Ingredients
  • 1 nectarine, diced
  • ½ cup strawberries, diced
  • ½ cup bell peppers, diced

  • ½ cup avocado, diced
  • ½ cup corn (grilled is best!)
  • 1 cup black beans
  • juice from one lime
  • optional: jalapeno, cilantro
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and serve.

Adding jalapeno is a great option if you want to add a little kick. Sub lemon juice for lime juice if you want!

  4. I love a variation of sweet, salty, savoury and well, everything. Perfect ‘salsa’ Linds. Can’t wait for Summer to make this (seeing as the only fruit now which doesn’t cost my left arm are apples and oranges!)
