Pro tip: Make sure to use an extra large bowl when mixing the salsa together, this recipe makes a pretty big batch. And don't hesitate to add more avocado if you'd like. More avocado is never a bad thing.

Ingredients

  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 bundle green onion, chopped
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can mexicorn
  • 2 ripe avocados, chopped
  • 1 packet Italian dressing packet
  • drizzle extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  1. Chop your onion, tomatoes and green onion and add to a large bowl
  2. Rinse the black beans and add to bowl
  3. Drain can of mexicorn and add to bowl
  4. Slice and scoop your chunks or avocado and add to bowl
  5. Sprinkle entire packet of Italian dressing packet into mixture
  6. Add extra virgin olive oil and stir the salsa until evenly coated

The secret to this recipe is definitely in the packet of Italian dressing mix, so make sure not to leave that out. It adds a very unique flavor profile that you won't find in regular store-bought salsas.

And that's it! Super simple and so delicious. You'll be collecting loads of compliments and requests for this recipe, I guarantee it!
