My fabulous mother-in-law Pam brought this Sweet Bean Salsa to share at a Wine & Design night I had back in October. She had gotten the recipe from my sis-in-law Katherine (everyone check out her photography website! She rocks: Furnished Photography ) who had gotten it from someone else so this recipe has been passed on many times and is refreshing and YUMMY!
Since they shared it with me in October, I have made it for 4-5 different events I have attended and everyone always RAVES about it and begs for the recipe... I have promised many people I would post it on the blog and here it is FINALLY!!
