Gardens are full of fresh veggies right now, so it’s a perfect time to get your fill of tomatoes, sweet corn, cucumbers and other delicious vegetables. We love snacking, especially lately while we have been enjoying the Olympics. Have you been watching? They are so inspiring.

Anytime we have a reason to make salsa, whether it’s just a snack while watching TV, or as a side dish for a meal, we jump at the chance. And with all the fresh garden veggies, now is the perfect time. This Corn and Black Bean Salsa combines all the delicious flavors of the garden…roasted sweet corn, onions and tomatoes along with Mexican flavors like cilantro, cumin and lime.

Since we are in Indiana, and surrounded by corn fields, sweet corn is readily available at the grocery stores, Farmer’s Market and even on many road side stands. During the Summer time, we often enjoy a vegetable dinner with roasted sweet corn, fried zucchinis and tomatoes from the garden.
