make it easier.



This is a favorite snack in our house*. Partly because it's really really simple, and partly because it's delicious. I usually have all the ingredients on hand so it's something I can make when that trip to the grocery store keeps getting put off. The balsamic vinegar adds a bit of sweetness, which I love.

Bean & corn salsa
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 red bell pepper (sometimes I add in an orange pepper too)
1 bag frozen corn
2 T. white or golden balsamic vinegar

Serve with tortilla chips.

*Thanks to my friend Sarah, who originally shared it with me.

  5. I'm glad you shared this!

    Even though I keep up with your blog regularly, I recently went through and looked at a bunch of your older posts. I know you hear this all the time, I tell you all the time, but you take the most gorgeous pictures. You have such a great talent for photographing everyday things like this delicious looking salsa.

    I hope you are getting a lot of sleep in preparation for your little baby girl coming! :)

  16. I make a variation on this, but with a "dressing" of olive oil, a little lime juice, salt, pepper, curry, and cumin. My fiance and I also like to add edamame and finely chopped carrots and celery.

  18. Brilliant! Tiny bit of ginger or cumin can spint it on its ear a bit.
