makaelynne's mexican salsa
My daughter's friend Makaelynne made this Mexican salsa for their second grade class's international feast. Fortunate for my daughter the two of them sit side-by-side in class so my daughter didn't only sample this salsa but I'm pretty sure she made a meal out of it! She showed me the class recipe book this morning so I picked up the ingredients so we can enjoy it for dinner tonight. I love that the recipe is so easy a second grader can make it! If we weren't so busy this afternoon I'd have her make it herself.
makaelynne's mexican salsa (Makaelynne)
1 can black-eyed peas, drained
1 can black beans, drained
1 can of corn, drained
1 avocado, thinly sliced
1 large tomato, diced
1 red onion, diced
1 bunch of cilantro (about 1/2 cup diced)
1 small bottle of fat free kraft Italian dressing (we're using the kraft zesty Italian dressing)
Mix in a bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Note:If you want spicy, add a diced jalapeno pepper or Makaelynne's family adds Sriracha sauce.
