Serves: 6-8 servings
  • juice of two limes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or other oil of choice
  • 1 tablespoon red or white wine vinegar
  • 1–2 teaspoons honey or sugar, optional
  • ½ teaspoon freshly grated lime zest
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1½ cups fresh or thawed from frozen corn kernels, to taste
  • 1 large avocado, peeled and diced
  • 3–4 large roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • ½ cup finely chopped red onion
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves, can use more or less to taste
  • 1–2 tablespoons minced jalapeño peppers, seeded (optional and to taste)
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together lime juice, oil, vinegar, honey, and lime zest. Season with plenty of salt and pepper; adjust seasonings to taste. Set aside the vinaigrette while you prepare the rest of the salsa. In a large bowl, combine black beans, corn, avocado, tomatoes, onion, cilantro, and minced jalapeño. Pour vinaigrette over the mixture and gently toss to combine. Serve immediately.
  2. Tip: If making salsa in advance, keep veggies (except for avocado) and vinaigrette stored separately in airtight containers. Toss veggies, freshly chopped avocado, and vinaigrette together right before serving.
