And Salsa For All!

I'm posting here a copy of my most-requested recipe. It is a staple at all BBQ's at the Watson house, ever since my cousin-in-law, Tracy introduced it to me years and years ago. So, I've shared it with many of you already, but just in case you don't have it, here it is! Some call it "Cowboy Caviar," some call it "Salsa Sorte,"but I call it "Awesome."

1 can yellow corn, drained
1 can white (shoepeg) corn, drained
1 can black beans, drained
1 can white, pinto, or kidney beans, drained (You choose- I've tried them all, and any one is great!)
3 tomatoes, diced
2-3 avocados, diced
4-5 green onions, chopped
1 bunch cilantro, finely chopped
1 package "Good Seasons" Italian salad dressing, prepared (I prepare it with 1/2 the oil)

Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl and serve with tortilla chips. It makes enough to serve a crowd!

It also tastes excellent on hamburgers. Place a spoonfull on the top of a grilled burger with some melted monterey jack cheese to give them a southwest kick. Mmm-mm! Anyone up for a BBQ? We always are!

Yum. I just had this the other day at a recipe exchange and I could have ate the whole bowl. So delish!!!! Hey, I started making German Pancakes and think of you each time. Not sure if it is the same recipe but definitely a hit at our house!

Amber--that looks fabulous! I think you should make some at the beach!!

I think Cindy has beach on the brain! And that's a great idea- but beware, once you start eating it, you can't stop!
