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.

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!
