Sweet & Spicy Black Bean Salad (Or Dip)

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by Mmmama

I could honestly eat this for days in a row...nothing else. It's a great combination of sweet corn and black beans and lots of other tasty things! It's worth the bit of mincing and is a great dish to make ahead of time. This can be served as a salad, but I've always made it as an appetizer dip, served with tortilla chips.

This is almost the same as what I make and very good. For a real taste treat try adding peeled and diced mango or a can of pineapple tidbits, drained. 3 great tase sensations with one basic recipie. Good stuff and good for you.
