Black Bean and Corn Salsa

Happy July Third!  Wow, this weekend just has not stopped with cookouts, pool parties, beach gatherings, and … snacking 🙂  If you need a fresh, easy to assemble, “no baking required” kind of appetizer or side salad, this Black Bean and Corn Salsa can be put together in minutes and does not disappoint.  Such a refreshing healthy alternative to heavier dips but paired with your favorite tortilla chip still totally satisfying!   Even kids love it… we actually had to tell them to take a break last night so there was some left for others.   Hoping you get some time this weekend to relax and enjoy good friends and family!  Happy Independence Day!

Perfect addition to any snack or dinner or table this hot summer weekend!!

1 large red pepper, chopped
1/2 red onion or sweet Vidalia onion
