Reviews for Corn 'n' Black Bean Salsa
"Great salsa to go with anything Mexican.....or for any gathering! I reduced the amount of corn and black beans to one can each and used scallions instead of red onion and pickled diced jalapeno to taste. I did add a bit more salt and a little olive oil and vinegar to give it more zip. Will definitely make this again....probably with fresh corn this summer!"
"Everyone loves this!"
"This has become a favorite!"
"I made this for my son's taco bar --- it was a delicious hit! I shared my experience on my blog:http://www.stayin-afloat.com/p/black-bean-salsa.html"
"I'm amazed how good this was with such simple ingredients. This was suppose to be served with quesadillas, but it was almost gone before dinner was ready!"
"Not only will I make this again - I can't wait to make it again! Simple; like a party in a bowl...and your mouth. I used red pepper instead of tomato and added a "drop" of olive oil and black pepper. Otherwise....I followed as directed."
"My family LOVES this salsa! They can eat it for a meal!"
"This is going to be a favorite! We've only made it once so far, but it was really good! We added a minced clove of garlic, some pepper, & additional salt. I think we'll probably add an extra jalapeno next time, because we felt it needed a little extra kick. But the mix of flavor was really good!"
"BEST corn and bean salsa ever. Fresh and healthy with some crunch. Love it, bro."
"Served this at my home for a Christmas gathering. I had to turn on the computer to print out the recipe. Easy and good. What more can you ask."
"I make this recipe often, easy, light & flavorful!"
"This salsa is great!!!! So easy to put together and so easy to change up the ingredients, plus it makes a huge batch!!!"
"I make this when I know I am going to have company. Easy to throw together quickly. I use shoepeg or white corn, add green pepper, and 1 minced garlic clove. I use this as a salsa, topping to my garden salad, or hamburger or hot dogs."
"Used 2 cans of Rotel instead of the fresh tomatoes and jalapenos. Used lemon juice instead of the lime (what I had). Tasted and looked great!"
"Have made this several times and I add an extra jalapeno. I always double it so there's some left after my family gets done "testing" it."
"This was very easy to make, and very yummy! It makes a huge batch so we took half to a party and had half left to enjoy at home. It was a big hit so I will definitely be making this again!"
"This is a great salsa recipe! I cut back to just 2 jalapenoes instead of the 4 because we don't like it quit so hot. But the flavor was wonderful. Thanks Mike!"
"This is a staple at my house for bbq's and we love to take a huge batch with us when we go camping. Great on soft tacos, great on chips. Love this salsa."
"I also added green and red bell pepper and minced garlic-about 3 cloves. I get rave reviews with this recipe."
"I love this salsa! It tastes so fresh. Much better than any store-bought version."
