"Easy-Peasy" Black Bean and Corn Dip

Hear the marching bands warming up? Feel the tiny bit of crisp in the air? It's THAT time again!! We'll all be in need of some fine football food and here's Cole's contribution...

Black Bean & Corn Salsa
(Printable Recipe HERE)
 (a recipe for which he calls Aunt Sudeana frequently because we always loose the sticky note!)

This salsa is not at all hot, it's more along the lines of a sweet and sour and tastes super on tortilla chips but is especially wonderful on pita chips as well.

Here's what you'll need:

1 can of corn (drained)
1 can of black beans (drained)
2-3 green onions (just the green parts, chopped)
8 oz. feta cheese*

1/4 cup of oil (we like canola) 
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup vinegar

Here's what to do:
Mix the drained corn and beans, the onions, and the feta cheese. 

Next combine the oil, sugar, and vinegar well. Finally add the oil mixture to the corn mixture. 
Mix well and...
start dippin!

*Note: If you don't like feta cheese, you should probably give it a try in this dip anyway, it takes on such a different flavor. If you just can't fathom using feta cheese, just leave it out, it'll still be yummy.

Happy Football Season!!
