Corn Black Bean Avocado Salsa
This Corn Black Bean Avocado Salsa is everything I love – sweet, savory, spicy, crunchy and fresh. Heaven in a dip, I say. Your summer’s about to get way more legit.
Happy Memorial Day and happy beginning of summer! Hopefully, you’re enjoying the day off from work today and spending time with family, friends and good food. I know you’re going to want a yummy salsa recipe to go with those delicious steaks, burgers or whatever deliciousness you decide to throw on the grill.
This recipe is a cross between a salad and salsa and is perfect served with chips, in tacos, salads, quesadillas and atop grilled meats. Fabulous any way you serve it – you really can’t go wrong.
Yesterday, we made shrimp tacos and used this corn salsa as the topping, along with crumbled feta cheese. It was such an incredible dinner and one we will definitely be making again soon. It was super easy too. I stirred 2 pounds of shrimp in 1 tablespoon avocado oil and lemon juice from 1/2 lemon. In a small bowl I mixed 1 teaspoon paprika, 1 teaspoon garlic powder and 1 teaspoon cumin and then sprinkled it over the shrimp, tossing to coat. I put the shrimp on skewers and let Brad do the grilling. He grilled them on high for about 1-2 minutes on each side. Yummers!
To enhance the flavors of the salsa, I used a new fine grind Himalayan Pink Salt from Frontier Co-op. Frontier Co-op is my absolutely favorite brand of seasonings. They don’t use GMOs, ETO or irradiation in their herbs or spices, so you can feel confident that every bite is as wholesome as it is delicious. Frontier Co-op also works directly with growers that are committed to quality, sustainability and ethical trade. Have you used any of Frontier Co-op’s spices or herbs? They are a must try!
