Laura’s Salsa

This ridiculously good salsa is from the cookbook of my cousin, Laura. Family goes ga-ga over it at the annual family reunion. Therefore, I knew it would be the perfect thing to share with guest at our Oyster Party last weekend.

Cousin Laura’s Salsa

1 can black beans, rinsed, drained
1 can Mexican or regular corn, rinsed, drained
2 large tomatoes or 6 Roma’s, chopped
3 green onions, sliced
1 pkg Good Season Italian dressing (can be found in the salad dressing section)
1/2 c olive oil
1/4 c vinegar
2 avocados
Tabasco sauce (optional, I did not add)
Mix Good Season Italian dressing, oil, and vinegar. Pour over tomatoes, onions, beans, and corn. Mix together well. Add sliced avocados just before serving.
Serve with corn tortillas as, over taco salad, or on top of eggs.
So good! Thanks Laura!

Salsa Burgers

The grilling season is coming to an end…

but before we get all sad and sentimental as we think back on our summer…

roll out that grill and fire it up just one one time for these yummy burgers.
Salsa Burgers

adapted from Clean Eating Magazine


1 lb lean grass fed beef

1 lb ground turkey breast

2/3 c fresh salsa or pico de gallo, drain

1/2 tsp sea salt

1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper

for guacamole:

1 small avocado, peeled, pitted, and roughly chopped

1/4 red bell pepper, finely chopped

1 T cilantro, chopped

1 tsp lime juice

1/4 tsp garlic powder

salt and pepper

optional: Greek yogurt spread on each bun (kinda like sour cream)


Combine beef, salsa, salt, and pepper. Shape into 1/2 inch thick patties (don;t work them too much as they will get tougher).

Grill away.

In the meantime, prepare guac by smashing avocado and combining the above ingredients. Another simple way to make guac is to just combine the avocado with salsa and a squirt of lime juice.
