Friday Faves: Cowboy Salsa

My sister had a little Cinco de Mayo party last night and the best part by far was the Cowboy Salsa, a recipe she shared with me a few years ago. I had to snap a picture really quick before it was devoured. This salsa is so yummy! In fact, one guest joked that she came to the party solely for the Cowboy Salsa.


This recipe was passed from friend to friend to friend, so unfortunately I don’t know who to credit for the orginal recipe. There are a few different versions you can find on the internet now but this one is my favorite.  It is super easy to make and you won’t regret making it. Try it out and let me know what you think!


Cowboy Salsa

  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 2 avocados, diced
  • 1 can Mexicorn, drained
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 bunch of scallions, diced
  • 1/2 of a big sweet onion, diced
  • 1/2 package dry Italian dressing mix
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup vinegar

Mix the second set of ingredients to prepare the dressing. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients from the first set except the avocado.  Add the dressing and mix some more.  Add the avocado last and mix.  Refrigerate until ready to serve. Enjoy!
