Summer Lovin' With Gretchen

I'm thrilled to be popping in while Olivia and her family live it up in Arizona! I'm sure they are having 
a blast in the summer sunshine :) Speaking of summer, something about it literally makes my mouth 
water for Mexican food. Especially salsa. 

This recipe is from my dear friend, Charissa, and is hands-down the ultimate salsa. 
May I introduce ... BLACK BEAN SALSA! Here's what you'll need:
  • 2-15 oz cans of black beans, drained and rinsed 
  • 1-15 oz can of corn, drained
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 cup lime juice, start with that, but you usually need more especially if it sits for awhile
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped Italian parsley
  • 1/2 cup cilantro
  • 1 chopped red pepper 
  • 1 small chopped red onion
Mix everything together in a large bowl and I promise you won't be disappointed! I highly recommend 
eating it with those bright green guacamole chips if you're going the dipping route or it is also fabulous 
atop burrito bowls or on nachos!
Gretchen blogs over at That Mama Gretchen where she 
shares about her days with a toddler and a bun in the
 oven sprinkled with memos about her attachment 
parenting experience, thrifty finds, crafty projects, and her 
goal of becoming more green. Stop by for a visit! You can also
