I love cool summer dishes with lots of contrast in flavor, color, and texture. This salsa recipe is from Light and Tasty’s June/July 2005 issue, and I want to try it sometime soon!

- 1 cup frozen peas, thawed
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1⁄8 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
- 1 medium tomatoes, chopped
- 1⁄3 cup chopped red onion
- 1⁄4 cup lime juice
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
- baked corn tortilla chips
- Combine corn and peas in large bowl.
- In nonstick skillet, cook cumin and oregano in oil over medium heat for 2 minutes; pour over corn mixture and stir to coat evenly.
- Stir in beans, tomato, and onion.

- Pour over corn mixture and stir to coat.

This recipe is totally AWESOME!!!! I have been making it since I found it in Light n' Tasty a few years ago! Everyone loves it and is always requested for any summertime event we attend. I even make it sometimes for DH for lunch! Add a margarita and your done!!!
I am sitting here munching on this salsa. It is very good and was easy to make; I followed the recipe exactly. It has a fresh taste, but is not for those who like a hot salsa. The flavor is mild enough for more sensitive palates like mine. I will definately make this again.
