Summertime is here and its time to make my black bean and corn salsa, a favorite in our house. It is the perfect side for anything grilled or even just over sliced avocado. It's as healthy as it is colorful and very simple to put together. This is one of Grace's absolute favorites!
2 c. black beans (you can use canned which have been rinsed or dry which have been soaked and cooked)
4 ears of corn cooked, with kernels removed or 1 pkg frozen corn
1/2 red onion chopped
1/2 red bell pepper chopped
1/4 c. cilantro chipped
1T ground cumin
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 fresh cracked pepper
Lime juice from 2-3 limes depending on size
Jalapeno pepper chopped (optional)
Toss all ingredients together, blend well and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
