Kidney Bean Salsa

Comment on this recipe

Wear gloves to seed pepper. Will keep refrigerated, covered for about 3 days, no longer, sometimes less, depending on tomato and onion. This salsa is our newest addition to grilled fish, any fish, catfish, tilapia, haddock, swai. Ron likes his on salmon also. I like it on beef, pork and lamb. It's very versatile and a nice change. Goes well on a bed of greens also, no dressing needed.

Ingredients

1/2 cup chopped tomato, skinned but not seeded
1/4 cup copped Vidalia onion
1 teaspoon fresh jalapeno pepper
2 medium garlic cloves, minced or finely chopped
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
2 cans (14 1/2 or 15 ounces) red kidney beans, drained and rinsed

Instructions

Combine tomato, onion, jalapeno pepper, garlic and vinegar in medium bowl. In second bowl, place rinsed, drained beans. With a dinner fork, smash a portion or the beans, not all, depending on how chunky you want the salsa. Add beans to bowl with tomato and spices. Mix well. Set aside to mellow flavors.
