Salsa Collection

A roundup of favorite salsas from fresh corn and black bean, restaurant style, watermelon and jalapeno, Mississippi style Texas caviar, black-eyed pea salsa and made from garden fresh veggies - there's one sure to please!

Salsa Collection

While they're certainly good all year round, one way to beat the heat for mealtime is a good salsa, whether served as a snack with chips, a meal for me, or used as a condiment with grilled foods. Here's some of my favorites. Be sure to check back as I'm sure I'll be adding to the collection over time!

Fresh corn and black bean salsa made with fresh off the cob corn and summer garden tomatoes, black beans, lime and cilantro. Just add some chips.

Tomatoes, onion, jalapeno, garlic, a little lime juice and cilantro, whirled up in the food processor to give you a nice restaurant style salsa that we all love.

Fire 'n Ice Watermelon Salsa, made with bell pepper, jalapeno, red onion, garlic, lime and cilantro, and watermelon, shown here with my Frozen Watermelon Margaritas.

Texas Caviar, done up my way, Mississippi style. Sort of a take on a bean salad really, it's simply a mixture of your favorite canned beans, usually the addition of corn, and a variety of chopped raw vegetables, all tossed in a vinaigrette.

Southern Caviar - a vinaigrette dressed, festive southern vegetable salad twist on salsa, made with black-eyed peas, celery, pimentos, jalapeno, garlic, green onion and fresh tomato, and beloved on the church supper, potluck and entertaining circuits.

Garden Fresh Salsa, made with juicy tomatoes, sweet Vidalia onions, crisp sweet garden bell peppers, spicy fresh jalapeno, sweet corn on the cob and fragrant garden cilantro.

  1. This past month I was introduced to Apple Salsa Salad as a compliment to roasted pork tenderloin. I think it is good enough to be a stand alone as just a side salad dish. Do you have this recipe in your vault? haha I really need to start making it. I do know it used Gala apples and honey as some of the ingredients.

    1. No, but wow, that does sound really good! I'll have to work on that.

  2. All look good! I'm going to try them all...That watermelon one really peeked my interest. I know Texas caviar, but I am interested in Mississippi style. Keep your wonderful home cooking recipes coming.

    1. I just made a trade on the beans & used a red kidney bean instead to represent red beans & rice for Mississippi style! :)

  3. Great collection! I feel a salsa dance party coming on.
    I make a salsa of sorts using creative license. Basically, when the garden explodes with zucchini, I make a refrigerator pickles recipe-- with zukes instead of cukes. What makes it a salsa? I dice the zucchini. LOL. Perhaps I have roots in Mississippi.
