Black Bean and Corn Salsa

Corn and Black Bean Salad

Black Bean and Corn Salsa

Easy to make, healthy salsa/salad recipe with loads of flavor! Addictive! This is a healthy dip/salsa recipe served with tortilla chips, but also goes well as a side dish with chicken or with fish or as a topping.  I make my black bean salad with cilantro, because I love it’s fresh flavor, but it can be made without cilantro if you prefer. This recipe is made with fresh corn, but canned or frozen corn can also be used. Simple ingredients are used to make this salsa recipe: canned black beans, fresh white corn, fresh plum tomatoes, jalapeno pepper, red onions, fresh lime juice, and ground cumin. I deseed the jalapeno, so it’s not a spicy.  I also use some granulated sugar for a hint of sweetness to compliment the acidity of the lime juice and a touch of apple cider vinegar is used to help bring out the flavors and add another dimension of flavor to the recipe.  It’s a fresh tasting, easy to make, healthy salad or salsa recipe and I get complimented on it all the time. (some people call this recipe corn and black bean dip, although I don’t think of that way)  It’s really a quick salad recipe and is on my list of easy summer salad recipes, but it’s also one of my favorite Cinco de Mayo recipes! My friend makes it with chick peas and I have used black eyed peas in this, but I really prefer this salad with black beans.  It’s very addictive, so be sure to make a big batch for your next gathering.
