I've been tweaking this recipe for years now and have perfected it to it's current ingredient list. It's the most requested summer recipe I make that qualifies as a "Health Food Snack" Everyone loves this fresh salsa. You can eat it for lunch, dinner or serve as a snack with blue corn chips. (This recipe is gluten-free and dairy-free)

Debra's Corn Black Bean Salsa GF/DF

1 16oz bag (frozen) organic Yellow or white sweet corn, thawed (or use 4 cups of fresh grilled sweet corn on the cob for those with ambition)
1 15oz can organic black beans rinsed and drained
3-4 stocks of green onion sliced thin
1 Green bell pepper chopped to diced
1 Red bell pepper chopped to diced (omit if you don't like a lot of bell pepper)
1 Yellow or orange bell pepper diced
1/4 cup fresh chopped/minced Cilantro
3 Ripe large tomatoes or 2 cups cherry tomatoes diced
1 Ripe diced avocado
2 Tablespoons Sugar (substitute stevia if sugar-free)
2 tsp salt
1/3 cup distilled cider vinegar
1 tsp Wright's Hickory Seasoning-liquid smoke (I talked with company, it is GF)
The juice from 1/2 fresh lime
1 Teaspoon Tabasco or to taste (optional)

Mix rinsed beans with thawed frozen corn in large colander and let drain. Move to large bowl. Add chopped onion, chopped bell peppers, diced tomatoes, diced avocado.
In separate bowl mix chopped Cilantro, sugar, salt, vinegar, liquid smoke and lime juice. Pour over corn, bean, tomato, bell peppers and avocados mixture- toss gentle. Taste and stir in Tabasco if desired.

Want it spicier? Add fresh or pickled jalapenos

Serve with gluten-free organic blue corn chips or roll in corn tortilla wrap.

Guess what I'm having for lunch today? Yes, you guessed it....my corn, black bean salsa sans cilantro, didn't have any today, but it's still very good. I always bump up this recipe every summer.
