An easy fresh salsa that's a perfect snack for kids and adults to enjoy during the Super Bowl.
Author: Diana Johnson
Recipe type: Snack
12 cherry tomatoes
1 large avocado
1 cup canned or cooked black beans
½ a green bell pepper, chopped
¼ cup finely chopped red onion
1 garlic clove, finely chopped
1 TBS chopped cilantro
½ tsp kosher salt
¼ tsp fresh ground pepper
2 TBS lime juice
Slice the tomatoes into quarters if their small and round, or eighths if they're the larger oval variety. Remove avocado from the peel and discard the pit. Chop avocado into half inch pieces. Add tomatoes and avocado to a large bowl.
Rinse and drain the beans and add to bowl.
Add the bell pepper, onion, garlic, cilantro, salt, pepper, and lime juice. Toss everything well. Taste and add more salt or lime juice as needed (I like to taste test with a chip since they are salty too).
You can definitely serve immediately but I like to refrigerate it 1-4 hours to let the flavors really develop.
Approximate cost/serving: Avocados are ALWAYS on sale this time of year. Pretty much all salsa ingredients are. This just cost me about $4 to make, even using organic ingredients. So $1 a serving. Vegetarian/Gluten Free: Yes to both and vegan too.
