Black Bean Salsa

I seriously can't believe I am just now posting this.  Super shame on me, because this stuff is yumtastic!  Definitely my favorite go-to-dip.  It's different from your normal salsa in that it's nice and chunky, and it isn't spicy.  At all.  It's just fresh and fabulous, and full of pretty colors!  Truly a plethora of nutrients for your palate to enjoy ;)

  • 3 roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 avocados, chopped
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can black olives, drained and sliced/chopped
  • 1 can's worth of frozen corn
  • handful of cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1-3 t. minced garlic
  • olive oil, 3 times around the bowl
  • balsamic vinegar, 2 times around the bowl
  • salt & pepper to taste
  1. Combine all the ingredients into a bowl.  Keep cool until ready to serve.
We usually make up a HUGE bowl, and more often than not it's gone within a day.  You can serve it as a dip with chips, a topping for salad/chicken, or a filling for burritos/quesadillas/tacos, etc.  Believe it or not, it even tastes better the next day!  But ours never makes it that long...  *B
