Easy Family Recipe for the Holiday’s Julie December 23, 2014 Dinner, Featured, Healthy, Recipes, Snacks Mom’s Easy Family Recipe For as long as I can remember, my Mom has had one go-to family recipe she whips out for every dinner party, holiday, special occasion, etc. Since she’s been making it, it’s been passed around to family members, friends, neighbors-just about everyone who’s had a taste begs for the recipe. It’s incredibly easy to make and does not even require specific measurements. Though seasonally best in the summer, (I mean, nothing compares to a farmer’s market tomato in the summer, am I right?) the ingredients can be found year long and I promise you the taste never gets old. The combination of flavors does give it a Mexican flare, but surprisingly works well with most meals, especially as an appetizer and a dip for chips. If you’re like me and would rather be spending your precious time off with friends and family, rather than all day in the kitchen, do yourself a favor and make this easy recipe ASAP! Ingredients for Mom’s Easy Family Recipe: 1 can Black Beans, drained 1 can Corn, drained 2 avocados, chopped 2 tomatoes, chopped 1/4 purple onion, chopped 1 bunch of cilantro, chopped 4 Tbl red wine vinegar 4 Tbl lime juice 2 Tbl olive oil Sea salt to taste Directions: Mix and enjoy! It really is that simple. Either serve immediately or place in fridge for 30 min-1 hour to really let the flavors and juices combine. Its versatility is what truly makes it the perfect recipe. It can be used as a dip for chips or crudités, a salad on it’s own, or add some plant-based or animal protein and you have yourself a full meal. A personal favorite way to eat it is using it as taco filling for small lettuce cups or corn tortillas! Maybe because I won’t be home for the holiday’s this year I have been thinking a lot about my family. A Family Recipe is one of the best ways to bring a little bit of home to wherever you may be for the Holiday’s. Hoping you get to spend time with family, friends, and great food.
