Tomato, Corn, and Black Bean Salsa

If you're looking for a great dish to bring for your 4th of July celebration--look no further.  This salsa comes together in minutes, is fresh, and tastes delicious!  I brought this to a family potluck, thinking it was nice and simple but nothing too special.  To my surprise, it got rave reviews.  I knew if our family enjoyed it (and requested the recipe), it was definitely worth sharing! 

Tomato, Corn, and Black Bean Salsa

Serves 12

1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
2 tomatoes, chopped
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
2 Tablespoons lime juice (or juice of 1 lime)
3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 Tablespoon cilantro
salt and pepper

1.  In a large bowl, combine black beans, corn, tomato and onion.

2.  In a small bowl, combine the lime juice, olive oil, and cilantro.

3.  Pour the marinade over the vegetables.  Add salt and pepper as needed.

4.  Refrigerate at least 30 minutes before serving.

Serve with tortilla chips for dipping.
