It’s kind of hard for me to believe that I haven’t posted this recipe yet. It is somewhat healthy and fun to make when you need something that serves a lot of people. And it tastes great.
In one of my many former lives, I used to play a lot of tennis. After the matches we would all gather around to eat and drink back all of the calories we had just burned off. :) I got lots of requests to bring this to our tennis functions and I pulled it out to make for our Friday night Happy Hour Get Togethers. It makes for perfect party food.
2 11 oz. cans of sweet corn, drained
2 2.25 ounce cans of sliced black olives, drained
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 medium onion, diced (I like Vidalia Sweet Onions for this)
2 cans of black beans, rinsed
2 ripe Avocados, peeled, pitted, and diced (Add before serving).
1/3 cup olive oil
3 large cloves garlic (or 5 small cloves) minced
1/4 cup lemon juice
3 Tbsp. cider vinegar
1 Tbsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
Mix all of the salsa ingredients except the avocado in a non-metal bowl. Wisk together the dressing ingredients. Pour the dressing over the salsa and mix well. Cover and chill. Add the avocados just before serving. I like to spread this out on a platter or serve in a decorative serving bowl. Mexican theme dishes if you have them are nice for this. Serve with corn tortilla chips. I like to serve this with Tostitos Scoops.
