This Black Bean and Corn Salsa also makes a great addition to dinner when you use it as a salsa on top of fish, chicken, pork, or beef. One of my favorite ways to use this salsa in a meal is with tortilla-crusted fish or chicken and to serve it with a side of Mexican Rice or Cilantro-Lime Rice. It makes for a simple and delicious dinner idea!
To make this Black Bean and Corn Salsa, you’ll start by adding the beans and veggies to a big bowl. Aren’t they so pretty together?! I love all the different colors and textures!
Next, whip together the simple dressing. Be sure to give it a taste and add more salt and/or pepper, if necessary.
Pour the dressing over the beans and veggies in the bowl and give it a stir. For better flavor, you’re going to want to let this Black Bean and Corn Salsa chill in the fridge for a bit. Give it a good stir again just before serving. Mmmmmm!
