Recipe of the Day: Fresh Corn & Black Bean Salsa

How about this little number? I know it says salsa, however, this eats like a meal. I use this as a topping but also as a salad or egg topper. I love fresh cilantro and corn. You can also make this spicy too by adding jalapeño! I usually have all of these ingredients in the fridge and pantry – so I make this quite often. Give it a try!

I really love using fresh corn this time of year - and especially using it raw.
