Corn & Black Bean Salsa

I am discussing this recipe today due to the many requests I have gotten from my brother to make it! I figured if he loves it so much, you guys might too! I've termed this a salsa but you can also call it a salad and use it as a side dish. Since my brother loves it with tortilla chips, I figured I would continue with the theme and go with salsa! Once you make this once, you will quickly realize how versatile and easy it is. As I mentioned, it goes great with tortilla chips, but it is also a great side dish to just about anything. Nothing is more satisfying on a warm summer night than a cold salad to go with your BBQ meal.


Recipe yields 6 servings

Ingredients
1 can sweet corn
1 can black beans 
1 large tomato
1/4 cup red onion
2 tbsp cilantro
Pinch of salt
Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
1 lime, juice
1/2 tbsp olive oil


Drain the corn and pour into a medium mixing bowl. Drain and rinse the black beans and pour into the mixing bowl. Mince the red onion and add to the bowl. Mince the cilantro and add to mixture. Chop the tomato and add. 



Cover ingredients with the salt, pepper, olive oil and juice from one lime. Mix well. Cover the bowl with cellophane wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Serve and enjoy with all your summer meals!
