Black Bean Salsa

April 10, 2010

Salsa is a staple at our house.  My kids love this salsa recipe and most adults do too.  I usually make it when we eat Mexican dishes because it goes so well as either a salsa or salad.

Black Bean Salsa

1 can black beans rinsed and drained

1 cup frozen corn (not thawed)

1/2 red bell pepper chopped

1/2 green bell pepper chopped

1 jalapeno seeded and chopped

1-2 cloves of garlic minced

1/2 to 3/4 cup green onion tops chopped

1/4 to 1/3  c canola oil

1/4  to 1/3 c  white  or cider vinegar( I use homemade vinegar)

1/2 bunch cilantro washed and chopped

1/2 tsp. cumin (optional)

avocado and tomato (optional)

Lime juice of 1/2 (optional)

Rinse and drain black beans in colander and add corn and rinse.  In medium bowl put beans and corn add all other ingredients except oil and vinegar.  In small bowl measure the oil then slowly while mixing with fork add the vinegar.  Dump vinegar oil mixture over the salsa and stir.  If you want to add avocado or tomato do so and stir. Cover and refrigerate for few hours.
