Garden Fresh Tomato and Black Bean Salsa Recipe

Hi!! I hope you had a great Monday, today! I stayed home with my 1st grader today, who was running a fever since yesterday. We went to the doc and it looks like allergies and some type of viral infection. Glad it was not anything worse! I made some yummy chicken noodle soup to help her feel better!

I know it's September, but it's pretty much peak tomato season around here right now, and I had to share my favorite homemade salsa with you! This is so easy to whip together, and the black beans are such a great addition. This recipe is really just a list of ingredients. Put as much or as little of each ingredient until it tastes good! Easy peazy! It goes great with any Mexican themed meal, or just as a snack!
