Recipe: Corn Salsa

We spent part of the holidays with my family in Indiana and my great-aunt brought over this delicious corn salsa that we just couldn’t get enough off.  Upon first glance it’s a pretty odd combination of ingredients – a few of which you may even wrinkle up your nose at. But I’m telling you, it is a MUST try recipe. The flavors and textures are just right and it is so simple to put together.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of white corn (drained)
  • 2 cups of black eyed peas (rinsed and drained)
  • 1/2 cup green onions (diced)
  • 2 cups celery (chopped)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 Tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup italian dressing

Mix all together one day ahead of when you plan to serve it.

Serve with scoop tortilla chips.
