salsa.Ethier.localherochallengeSubmitted by Hazel and Iris Chase Ethier for the Local Hero Challenge Recipe Contest.

This salsa has loads of corn plus tomatoes, cilantro, red pepper and garlic that we can get from our garden and our CSA.

  • 2 cups of corn (fresh cut off the cob tastes best but you can use frozen corn too)
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 red pepper
  • 2 avocados
  • 1 can of black beans
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tablespoons of cilantro
  • Juice of 1 lime
  •  Salt and pepper to taste

Cut up the avocado and mix with lime juice. Add remaining ingredients. Chill.

We like to eat this salsa with corn chips for a snack. We also put it in burritos or over nachos with cheese.
