We love Black Bean Veggie Salsa all year round, but especially in the Spring and Summer…
My Aunt gave us this recipe years ago, and now it is a family favorite! It’s great for backyard barbecues, football snacking, impromptu get togethers, feeding a hungry crew before dinner or a simple meal prep!
It’s fresh, crisp and tangy and when paired with crunchy chips is second to none!
Not only is it delicious, it is super quick and easy, taking merely minutes to assemble, literally.
And best part, it’s made with ingredients you probably already have in your house— so it can come together last minute and you’ll look really impressive!
So let’s make it!
It’s 6 real, whole food ingredients plus a refreshing and surprise seasoning:
Cherry or Grape Tomatoes
and Fresh Parsley
all mixed together and seasoned with Rice Wine Vinegar, salt and pepper, that’s it!
The rice wine vinegar gives it such a bright and refreshing flavor, perfect for hot summer days or switching up the flavor if heavier winter eats!
And all you do it open 2 cans, dice a few veggies and mix together!
Of note, the recipe calls for 1 pepper or 1 red onion and only approximate amounts of measurements. This is intentional… The recipe is supposed to be easy and stress-free…. If the pepper, diced comes to 1 cup or a little more or a little less, it will still taste great!
Same with the rice wine vinegar.
I used to literally just pour/ drizzle the rice wine vinegar over the salad… I have measured it for you and we tend to like it on the higher end of the measurement but start on the lower end, taste and you can always add more!
We usually serve it alongside a big bowl of gluten-free tortilla chips– we love these Siete Foods Lime Tortilla Chips– the saltiness of the chips perfectly balances the fresh and tangy salsa.
My Aunt always served them with Tostitos Scoops because they were perfect for holding the salsa!
If you use them, just check that they’re still gluten-free!
Finally, while we almost always serve this salsa with chips, it is also perfect as a side dish with avocado, serve alongside grilled chicken or add in some quinoa and turn it into our favorite Black Bean Veggie Quinoa Salad.
These are all ways my husband and I have enjoyed leftovers.
Hope you love it as much as we do!
