Recipes, Side Dish

Our Macro-Friendly Black Bean Corn Salsa is the perfect compliment to any party, gathering, BBQ, or get-together! This dish is packed with nutrients, full of flavor, and will be enjoyed by all – even the self-proclaimed non-bean people.

I make this dish every summer when we have a cookout to attend or are having friends over to the house to swim. Instead of grabbing a jar of salsa, I'll whip this up and everyone is always impressed. For the ten minutes it'll take you to throw this together, it's well worth the effort!
