Black bean and corn salsa

In honor of Memorial Day weekend, I am sharing one of my favorite easy recipes. I just made it last night, and its popularity hasn't waned since the last time I made it. This is a good recipe to have on hand when someone calls and says, "We're eating out.  Come on over and have a hamburger."  I almost always have the ingredients on hand.  It's yummy.

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

1 can white and yellow (or just yellow) corn, drained and rinsed

1 small green pepper, diced

1 small onion, diced

1 jar (more or less) of salsa

Marinade:  1/4 cup of each:  vegetable oil, white vinegar and sugar

Combine the first five ingredients.  Mix the marinade and pour over salsa.  Note:  You might need to experiment with the marinade to taste.  Some people feel the sugar makes it too sweet.  I like the sweet/hot combination, but feel free to add less or no sugar.  Also, I usually don't use a whole jar of salsa.  I pour about half in, let the salsa chill in the fridge and then decide if it needs more.

Serve with tortilla chips or Fritos.

This sounds delicious. I am going to give it a try. Fresh is almost always better than store bought. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
