Looking for a quick and easy appetizer or side dish? I’ve got you covered. This Avocado Corn and Black Bean Salsa takes less than 10 minutes to make and only requires a few ingredients!

This salsa is fresh and healthy with a mixture of avocado, tomatoes, black beans, red bell pepper and corn. It’s dressed with fresh squeezed lime juice and extra virgin olive oil.

I also add in jalapeños and red onion for a little spice. Once all of my ingredients are prepped I toss everything together in one large bowl. I find the longer this salsa sits in the refrigerator the better it tastes! This helps the flavors to develop. I like to let it sit for at least 30 minutes or overnight! Just wait to add the avocado until you are ready to serve the salsa.

Ingredients

  • Cherry Tomatoes
  • Black Beans
  • Avocado
  • Cilantro
  • Red Onion
  • Red Bell Pepper
  • Corn (I use frozen off season but fresh corn is amazing in this!)
  • Jalapeno
  • Lime Juice
  • Olive Oil
