Sweet Black Bean Salsa

This recipe, like so many of my favorites, has been passed down through friends. I asked for the recipe after a book club gathering from my friend Kelsee, who in turn got it from her beau’s sister.

No matter where this recipe originated it is a wonderfully fresh appetizer that can be put together quickly, and doesn’t require any cooking.

Enjoy and feel free to pass it on!

Mix together:

1 can black beans, drained + rinsed
1 can shoepeg corn, drained
1 pkg. feta cheese (4 oz.-ish)
1 small bunch (6 or so stalks) green onions
1/4 c. Extra-virgin Olive Oil
1/4 c. apple cider vinegar
2.5 tsp. sugar

Serve with tortilla chips.

    Yum! What a great change from just having tomato salsa. Plus there’s enough nutrition in this dish that it could easily serve as a light lunch rolled up in a tortilla.

      Ohh what a great idea! I have enough left to try out a burrito…add a little lettuce and cheese…sounds like a meal to me!

    You can always toss in some cherry tomatoes or grape tomato halves in there as well.
    I do a similar black bean/white bean/corn dish with vinegar dressing that I often have with red-pepper/lime pork chops. Yum.

      You are going to mention something that sounds as good as “red-pepper/lime pork chops” and not elaborate…?!? 😉 If it isn’t a treasured secret family recipe I would love to hear your recipe!

        It’s not so much a “treasured secret family recipe” as a handful of this and a big squeeze of that, cooked till done. It’s pork chops that sit for a while in a casserole dish with lime juice and red pepper flakes and powdered cumin, then baked till done. Seriously, I have no recipe.
        I usually have a small baked sweet potato or mashed sweet potato with that and the bean/corn dish too, if I’m going all out.

          That mixture sounds great! We don’t eat pork chops a lot, but I think that is worth adding them to the grocery list this weekend and giving it a try. Thanks!!

            I tried out the pork chop marinade and it was amazing! I forgot to pick up a lime so I subed lemon juice. I also added a little cider vinegar and a tiny bit of brown sugar. So, so good!!

    I make a salsa with all of your same ingredients except I also chop up one each red, yellow and orange bell peppers. Neither my youngest daughter nor I am a fan of peppers but we LOVE this salsa. Like seriously, we can eat it til we feel sick, lol. We can make a meal out of it! I also usually double the corn to 2 cans of shoepeg corn as we love corn but all other ingredients and measurements are the same as yours.

      The peppers sound like they would really add a little extra kick! It has been a while since I have made this and I have some fresh peppers in the frig…some corn from the garden…maybe I will make this tonight!
