You can enjoy this as a side dish, as a topping or a dip. I like to mix it with cooked grains and stuff it into a collard for a yummy burrito!
Making your own condiments is a great alternative to buying them for both health and financial reasons.
Here are a few links to some of my recipes:
Corn and Black Bean Salsa
- 1 c corn
- 1 c black beans, drained very well
- ¼ c chopped tomato or diced red pepper
- 1 Serrano chili
- 2 T onion, minced
- 1 clove garlic, pressed
- 1 t toasted cumin seeds
- Small pinch marjoram
- ½ t salt
- 1 T chili powder
- Juice of 1 lime
- 1 T apple cider vinegar
- 2 T cilantro
Toss together and allow mixture to sit for an hour or so the flavors can get to know each other.
This will keep for three days, but I doubt it will last that long!
