Balsalmic Black Bean Salsa

Cooking club has been so much fun to try some new recipes from other ladies in the ward.  It's basically bringing all the best of our family favorites altogether and adding some fabulous recipes to my collection.  

It is really yummy!  It does have a kick to it, if your not a spicy fan, you may want to use a milder salsa verde or cut down on the cumin!  nothing says summer like a yummy salsa!

*Serves 6-8 as an appetizer

1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed well
1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained well
½ medium onion finely diced (about 1/3 cup) (I like red onion better)
½ cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
1 (7 oz.) can salsa verde (I used Embassa brand)
Juice of 1 lime
½ teaspoon cumin
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all of the ingredients together in a medium bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let the salsa marinate for a few hours (or overnight before serving). Drain most of the liquid from the salsa before serving. Serve with tortilla chips.
