Spicy Bean Salsa
Reviews:
January 22, 2007

Oh my God! I have been making this salad for ever, not this one exacly but a version of it. Since I'm from Guatemala, all the salsa-like dishes are very popular. No only is this delicious but also healthy and hip-friendly. What I do different is that instead of the dressing i use lemon, salt, pepper and just a little olive oil. This helps to enhace the flavor of the other ingredients, not fight them. I use about 1/4 cup of fresh, chopped cilantro (the flavor secret herb!), fresh chopped tomatoes (you are going to see the difference in flavor, consistency and low the sodium), 1 clove of fresh garlic instead of the powder one. I use the beans i cook (we always have home cooked beans in almost every home in Guatemala)but have try the canned ones, just rinse them and let them dry, the same with the sweet corn. The jalapeno is optional for me, since i don't like spice food I leave out, but for the guys I added. One last thing, let stand on the fridge for at least 1 day to let all the flavors come together.
