Salsa with Corn and Black Beans

Submitted by: TAHLON

Introduction

Fresh salsa is always better than bottled, and it is much lower in sodium. This salsa is great with tortilla chips, on tacos or burritos or tostadas, or even straight out of the bowl!

    I liked this salsa. I will make it again. I have never had cilatro before and I found it to have an odd flavor, so I will not put so much in next time. My husband liked it also. We used it as a side dish with porkchops. It was light and fresh. This is a keeper. - 3/22/07
