Black Bean Salsa• 1 can black beans drained and rinsed• 1 cup fresh or frozen white corn• 1 cup chopped grape tomato’s• 2 avocado’s finely chopped• 1 bunch cilantro rubbed first then chopped**(rubbing the cilantro releases the flavor)1 & 1/2 pkgs of dry Italian Seasoning mixedwith 2 T of vinegar and 1/3 cup of olive oil. (Western Family pkgs are always 2 or 3 for $1)Pour over salsa and mix.Being done with grocery shopping AND finding the "perfect" items to make some Christmas gifts with (heaven forbid I actually buy stuff without being able to make something first). The only bummer in my shopping trip was that the store was out of Weight Watcher eclairs (completely out! Is my recommendation catching on?), so I'll have to go back; plus, I forgot several key items (I hate getting home and forgetting stuff). Oh well, at least the majority is over.

Would you like the recipe? Here you go (although I don't use the cilantro):
