All ears salsa; guilt-free yummy summer treat!

All ears salsa; guilt-free yummy summer treat!

T’is the fresh corn season and you do not want to miss out this yummy sweet summer delightful produce.

Corn is the perfect high fiber, low-cal way to add a sweet crunchy flavor to any of your summer dishes.

With the tomato crop being so plentiful as well this season, i thought to create a combo salsa that is delicious, healthful, and perfect with flackers, chips, as a side dish alone or with baked summer fresh potatoes.

This salsa is low in everything: calories, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrate and fat, but not in flavor. It boasts corn, which is a whole grain and tomatoes, which are rich in antioxidants. The perfect yummy guilt-free summer treat.

Recipe:

  • 3 cups chopped seeded tomato (about 3 medium)
  • 3/4 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped tomatillos (about 2 medium)
  • 1/4 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained. You can also soak you own overnight, rinse, cook or-rinse and sprout them for a few days then use
  • 1/4 cup fresh corn kernels
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice plus rind (must be organic)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce, small jalapeno or chipotle pepper

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl; cover and chill and enjoy!
