My Zesty Bean Salsa will not leave you disappointed. It’s full of beans, onions and bell peppers, then topped with Italian Dressing (yes, I said Italian).
A friend of mine introduced me to this new un-traditional zesty salsa a few years back. I gave it a try and was surprised at how good it was. But, then I had to let the big fella try it out. He’s a picky eater and he struggles when deviating from what would be typically the ‘norm’. He absolutely loved it!! I was shocked.
The recipe below makes around 6 cups of salsa. When Bob finds it in the refrigerator he will eat more than half on his own (rolling my eyes towards the heavens). That must mean something is going on that’s good.
I’ve also made Zesty Bean Salsa for a friend of ours who has issues with certain types of food. The night we had them over I had made Carne Asada for dinner. She loved the salsa as an appetizer but she added the salsa to a baked potato which is something I had not thought about – at all. She loved it, and now it is something we do in our house. I also eat this salsa on crackers or with tortilla chips. When I take it to work for a Potluck, there is never any left.
I can’t express in words how awesome this tastes and how easy it is to make. Give it a Try!
It's This Easy!
Drain Black Beans, Corn and Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes. Pour into a medium sized dish and then add the black eyed peas and all liquid into the same dish as the other ingredients. Add diced bell pepper, onion and jalapeños (I generally only use about a tablespoon when I make this). Pour the salad dressing over everything and season with garlic, salt and pepper if necessary.
Serve immediately or chill for a few hours in the fridge. Serve with tortilla chips.
