Heather's Cilantro, Black Bean, and Corn Salsa

This salsa is so good for you, healthy all the way around.  We eat it with baked chips, as a salad dressing, toppers for potatoes and on wraps.  There is many different versions that you can make.  My best bud, Robin, has a great Texas Caviar recipe on her blog, http://robinrane.wordpress.com/.  (she also is the craftiest and most creative person alive)

BLACK BEAN SALSA

1 can black beans, drained

1 can of black eyed peas, drained

1 1/2 cups frozen corn  or 1 can of corn, drained

1 bunch of cilantro, chopped

2 teaspoons minced garlic

3 green onions, chopped

1 – 1 1/2 cup tomatoes, cut in small pieces (cherry tomatoes work great, quartered)

fresh ground pepper to taste

1 package dry Good Seasons Italian Dressing  or a Light Italian dressing

2 lemons or limes squeezed

white wine vinegar to taste

Optional ingredients:  Avacado, any color bell pepper, red onion, jalapenos, other types of beans

Instructions:

Drain beans and corn.  Mix with all other ingredients.  The dressing is purely to your taste.  You can just add the white or red wine vinegar, or just lemon or lime juice.  If you are in a hurry use bottled Italian dressing.  Don’t have black eyed peas then use any other bean you have in the cupboard.  The versitility is endless.  IT IS SO HEALTHY!!!!
