Corn and Black Bean Salsa

Another H-O-L-I-D-A-Y!!!!! I love me some holidays, and the 4th is right up there with one of the favorites.  I’m a sucker for fireworks, and will eat pretty much anything that’s grilled and/or has the word “salad” after it.

I’ve never hosted a 4th of July party, but always try to find a good one on or near the water.  Since I am a guest, I always need to bring something good to either throw on the grill or pass around.  This recipe has been one of my family go-tos for ages now, simply because it’s made mostly with stuff from our pantry.

The best part besides it being easy and relatively healthy — it’s SUPER cheap to make.  What more could you look for in a tasty side dish for your party?
