Two words for this lightened-up salsa recipe: simple and delicious! I hope you love my recipe for Black Bean and Corn Salsa as much as I do! This recipe can be thrown together in 5 minutes and is the perfect addition to any Mexican dinner, or can easily stand on its own for a fast appetizer. It's a great salsa to accompany grilled chicken, to top tacos with, use as a pizza or flatbread topping, or to eat on its own with your favorite low-sodium tortilla chips. Try it on top of my Skinny BBQ Chicken Flatbread! The best part about this recipe? Chances are you already have all the ingredients in your pantry.
- Fresh lime juice is the best tasting for this recipe, but using lime juice from the bottle will work, too.
- Feel free to store leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days (counting the day you made it).
- The longer this sits, the more the flavors will meld together for a delicious salsa! It's best to make it a few hours ahead of when you need it so it is the most flavorful.
