Dave and I rarely get to go out for date nights because we have a hard time finding babysitters, plus there isn’t really anywhere to go out to anyway. Because of this, we decided to have a date night at home, and thanks to the Morton Salt Girl’s 100th birthday we had recipes to try and salt to use for our celebration. Dave made us margaritas and I made an awesome corn and black bean salsa!
To add salt to the cup rims, rub the rim with a slice of lime and then roll the cup in a bowl of salt. I love my margaritas with salt!
Here is the recipe for the salsa:
Black Bean & Corn Salsa (from Morton Salt, slightly altered by me):
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 cup corn kernels (I used frozen)
1 small red onion, diced
1/4 cup black beans
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp prepared mustard
1 tsp Morton Salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
Heat olive oil in skillet over medium high heat. Add corn and saute for 2-3 minutes. Add onion and beans and continue to saute for another 3 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer to a bowl. Add lime juice, mustard, salt, and pepper and mix well. Allow to cool and serve with chips!
Do you enjoy at home date nights?
