Good Dip = Popularity at Parties. Prep for Labor Day with the Single Gal.

Happy Saturday!  I  seriously can't believe it is almost time for football season and fall weather! Where has summer gone?! The Housewife and I will be drawing our SEC battle lines by next week.  My 1/2 Marathon will be here sooner rather than later {which means I should probably register for it instead of spending my money on Lilly sale items}.   It's clear I need to get organized.  

Since football season will be here and Labor Day weekend is always full of  invites for cookouts and parties I wanted to share a recipe with you that I got from my cousin that is a serious crowd pleaser. She brings this fabulous black bean, corn, and feta dip to tailgates and any other occasion and the best part -- it takes like 10 minutes to make.  Actually, I make it a lot at my house to just eat over the weekend.  All for me.  I don't even take it anywhere.  

Black Bean, Corn, and Feta Dip

*note, photo not mine. this stuff is so good I eat it all before I can think of taking a food picture.*

1 can of black beans, drained & rinsed

1 can of white corn, drained & rinsed

1 6 oz package of feta cheese, crumbled

4 scallions, chopped

1/3 cup balsamic vinegar

1/3 cup olive oil

pinch of sugar

directions: chop scallions, mix with black beans, corn, and feta. whisk together vinegar, olive oil, and sugar. pour over ingredients. toss. chill and serve with tortilla chips. 

*side note, if you don't dig onions lose the scallions.  i have made it both ways due to laziness and it still tastes perfect to me. also, i prefer blue corn Tostitos for the dipping.

Go forth and be popular at your parties and tailgates. Trust me.

Love you. Mean it.

  1. i use apple cider vinegar, not balsamic...never thought to try that. hmmm, it must work! :) totally yummy and make it for dinner all the time!

    1. I feel like The Housewife did tell me that, but I have been making i with balsamic. I really have been eating it for dinner ever since our lake day. Not even kidding! We may have to put it in rotation for Christmas! =)
