I grew up in a wonderful home with an amazing mother. My 2 grandmothers lived close by and we were spoiled by them. One was named Anna and the other Rhea Anna. And so my handle if you will is Granny Ann. Together those 3 women taught me everything and taught me how to love living life by hand. I hope you enjoy the adventure as much as I have.

Corn Salsa

Nothing like home grown garden tomatoes. I didn't used to say that but I do now. I can remember my grandparents walking out into their gardens, picking tomatoes off the vine and then taking a big bite out of one. As a kid I thought that was so gross. Now I can't eat a hamburger or salad without one. What would be the point of a hamburger or salad without their favorite sidekick! This corn salsa is not something I had as a child but with all those tomatoes needing to be used up it is a creative, delicious and fun dish. You can use any fresh veggies you have in your garden and any spices from your garden or cupboard. You might even like to add fresh fruit even though the corn itself is quite sweet. Right now my favorite spice combination is cumin, lime and cilantro so that is what I used. Have fun making your own combinations but try mine first.

1 1 pound bag frozen petite white corn - thawed
4-5 tomatoes diced in large pieces
2-3 avocados cubed
2 15 oz. cans black beans - drained and rinsed
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/3 teaspoon onion salt (or 3 green onions diced)
1/3 teaspoon garlic salt 
2 tablespoons lime juice

Mix all ingredients together and try to let it sit for 30 minutes. If you're like me you won't be able to wait that long. But if you start eating it right away don't add more salt of any kind or it will be too salty in 30 minutes.
Eat with your favorite tortilla chips.
