Corn and Black Bean Salsa

Pin It

I have no idea where this recipe came from (if you have any idea, let me know so I can give credit where credit is due!). I simply copied and pasted the recipe into an email one day and sent it to myself. It's similar to the cowboy caviar I recently posted, but with a balsamic based dressing. I brought this to a picnic with tortilla chips, but I think it'd also be excellent over some spinach or romaine, or even as a burrito filling. I love easy appetizers, especially when they can be made ahead of time. This one fits the bill on both accounts!

Corn and Black Bean Salsa

-1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
-2 tbsp vegetable oil
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp white sugar
-1/2 tsp ground black pepper
-1/2 tsp ground cumin
-1/2 tsp chili powder
-3 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
-1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
-1 can sweet corn, drained

1. In a small bowl, mix together balsamic, oil, salt, sugar, pepper, cumin, and chile powder.
2. In a medium bowl, stir black beans and corn. Toss with dressing and mix in chopped cilantro. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
