Foodie Friday: Perfect Picnic!
 Perfect Picnic is such a fun theme for our first link up and I am really excited to bring you one of my favorite summertime recipes.  Since picnics and summer go hand in hand and summer tends to be hot and humid the last thing I want to do is slave over a hot stove to bring a dish to pass.  I have been making this sassy salsa recipe for years and it is a favorite amongst all the picnic party peoples.

  1. Combine all the ingredients up to the corn and mix. Add chopped cilantro, lime juice and salt and pepper, toss until everything is coated.

The avocado adds some creaminess, the black beans add heartiness and the corn adds the perfect crunch. What really gives it a burst of flavor is the combination of lime juice and cilantro that this refreshing summer side dish is dressed in. It can be eaten with chips like a dip or even served as a side dish!

This pairs really well with honey-chili barbecue shrimp which is what I serve it with when I make the recipe for the family. The spice that the chili gives is a nice contrast to the coolness of the salad. To make the shrimp, I simply took raw shrimp, skewered them and brushed a whisked combination of honey, chili and olive oil onto the shrimp and grilled!
