Black Bean & Corn Salsa

I had a small group of friends over for a holiday tea a few months ago.  I thought a simple tea would be a great way to get all of us together and catch up.  Everyone offered to bring something, and we ended up with a wide variety of snacks and treats.  My friend Babita brought Black Bean Salsa and chips, and it was delicious.

This salsa and chips dish is a perfect snack for a summertime get together.  Especially when we can find juicy tomatoes and fresh corn at the farmer’s markets. I asked Babita for the recipe, and she said she got it from a web site called Show Me the Curry.  Here is the link to the recipe for Black Bean and Corn Salsa.  I’ve also included the recipe here.
