Guest Blog- Addicting Texas Bean Dip!

Megan the "guest blogger" here to post a recipe that a dear friend of mine gave to me to try.  Shelbi suggested I share with y'all!  (I'm not from Texas.  Just easily influenced by Miss Shelbi!)  
I love this recipe because it is so easy and the perfect dip/appetizer to take to a party!  (especially on game day!)  My husband loved it!  I had my 3 month old, Sarah, help me in the kitchen.  She was a big help!
Sarah... the cutest Sous-Chef ever!

Addicting Texas Bean Dip

1 Can Black Beans (washed)
1 Can Sweet Corn
1 Can Shoepeg Corn 
(I had never heard of this corn.  But it's findable!  Green Giant makes it)
6 Green Onions (chopped)
4 oz. Small tub of Feta Cheese

1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Extra Light Olive Oil 
(not to be confused with Extra Virgin Olive Oil- this is less greasy)
1/2 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar
Garlic Salt (to taste)
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
Serve with Tortilla Chips  

Sarah's got the recipe ready!

 Wash the Black Beans

Cut up the Green Onion

 Mix together the beans and the corn

 Add the green onion

 Poor in the Feta Cheese.

The Dressing Ingredients (plus the garlic salt and S&P)

 Pour Dressing over Bean Mix and serve with chips!

I added a little protein to the dip last time!  It was really good.  We had it for dinner! 

And Voila!

 Sarah says... "Good job!  Wish I could try it!  Give me a few months to get some teeth!"

Thanks Shelbi for letting me "guest blog"!  I am always inspired by you and your recipes!  You make cooking fun for me.  And, as a result... I am always left with a very happy (and full) husband!
