Taco Night

Last night I had some girls over for a taco dinner!
For an appetizer I made Strawberry, Corn & Avocado Salsa. This was such a hit that I must share the recipe with you...
Strawberry, Corn & Avocado Salsa
Adapted from Family Fresh Cooking

1 cup of corn
3/4 cup diced Red Onion
½ cup garbanzo beans
1 ½ cups finely diced Strawberries
1 diced Avocado
1 Lemon juiced
Olive Oil
Season to taste with: Chili Powder, Black Pepper, Garlic Powder and Salt
Top with Feta Cheese or Goat Cheese

For our cocktail, I made a large bowl of White Wine Sparklers. Oh, and I also made Cake Batter Rice Crispy Treats for dessert {recipes to come}!
 I picked up some dahlias from the Farmer's Market - so pretty!

{my girls!}
Happy Monday!


  1. Such a good idea!! I'm going to have to pin and make that salsa..sounds so refreshing and yummy!

  2. I've made (several times) and blogged about cake batter rice krispy treats. They're good, not great, and definitely not worth the extra calories. I still tend to make them though, haha!!

  3. oh yum! that looks delish! looks like a very fun night!

  4. Looks delish!I saw this on Instagram last night and was hoping you would blog about it!

  5. SO fun! i think we should be friends!

    p.s. that salsa looks amazing!

  6. Definitely making the salsa tonight.. so good! Did you make the taco pie?

  7. Yum! I love taco easy and delicious!

  8. Love those napkins! Looks like a super fun girls night!

  9. What a fun night!! I'm definitely going to have to try the salsa! Yum! And I'm looking forward to that cocktail recipe!

  10. That looks so good! I have to try this.

  11. How fun! I always love girls nights in!!! Definitely going to have to try the strawberry salsa. Super creative and I bet it's super yummy, too!

  12. So fun!! I had salsa one time with strawberries in it and it blew my mind...and yours looks even better!

  13. I love me a good taco night. That dip looks insane.

  14. Seriously you are the ultimate hostest with the mostest!!! That dip looks amazing...can't wait to make it for my husband when we LIVE TOGETHER! :)

  15. Wow...that salsa sounds too good to be true. Strawberries joining forces with avocados?! It has to be good! Thanks for sharing. Glad you had a good girls night!

  16. Such a cute idea for a girls night! All the food sounded so yummy! Thanks for the recipe!!! :)

  17. I love this girls night! I might just borrow this recipe! Love the blog!

  18. The spread looks amazing! My new obsession is a quick pickled red onion for taco night - so easy and provides that perfect acid bite! Just toss a red onion, thinly sliced, with 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar, 1 cup water, 1 tablespoon sugar and 2 teaspoons salt. Let sit in bowl, tossing occasionally at room temperature, for one hour. (And they turn a pretty pink color - perfect for girls night) :)
