Summer Salsa

My favorite thing about summer is the fresh fruits and veggies that are in supply at all the grocery stores. I just love walking down the aisles and seeing the beautiful colors and smelling the fresh smells.

And don’t even get me started on Farmer’s Markets. LOVE.

When I saw this recipe on Pinterest, I knew immediately that I wanted to make it. So I did. I changed it up a bit for our tastes, but most of the recipe is the same.

Summer Salsa
Adapted From: Be a Pot Stirrer

1 small onion, finely chopped
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 lime, zest & juice
pinch of salt
drizzle of olive oil
4 roma tomatoes, chopped
1/4 green bell pepper, chopped
1/4 red bell pepper, chopped
1/4 yellow bell pepper, chopped
1 jalapeno, seeded & diced
1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can of whole kernel corn, drained and rinsed


In a small bowl, stir together onion, garlic, lime juice and salt. Set aside while you prepare the other ingredients.

In a large bowl, mix together tomatoes, bell peppers, jalapeño, black beans and corn. Add in onion, garlic and lime juice. Add salt and more lime juice to taste.

Be prepared… this makes A LOT of salsa. But it’s so good, you will want to eat ALL of it. At least it’s healthy though, right?!
