When I get an idea for a blog, I create a new post in WordPress and then hit “Save Draft” so I can remember to come back to it when I have time. This way I don’t forget about a post and I can take some time to write out exactly what I want to say instead of just getting my idea down on the computer.
Unfortunately that results in something like this:
I get so many ideas for recipes or restaurants to review or just things that happen to me that I want to share, but I don’t have time to do it. Working retail plus entertaining my husband takes up a lot of my time. I don’t apologize though. I am thankful to have a job in this economy and I am doubly thankful to have a husband who actually wants to spend time with me. When I get a morning off, I take full advantage of the situation and try to catch up with my posts. SO…with that being said, I give you a very quick, very easy recipe my coworker, Julie, made yesterday. Enjoy!
Corn and Black Bean Salsa
Makes 8 cups
2 cans whole kernel corn, drained
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 red onion, finely diced
1 green pepper, finely diced
1 bottle Italian dressing
Mix all ingredients together and serve with tortilla chips.
This is the easiest recipe I have ever put on my blog, but it’s also one of the most delicious! I don’t know why the Italian dressing works so well here, but it does. In my opinion, you could use just half a bottle of Italian dressing and be OK, but the original recipe calls for a full bottle, so that’s what I wrote. (The label below reflects the salsa only and does not include any dippers.)
I’d also like to mention yesterday was my three year anniversary with my wonderful husband, Jeff. We had a great time staying in and relaxing after each having extremely stressful days at work. Love you, honey!
