Black Bean Salsa

I am not a salsa person and neither is my family but there is something to this that makes it so addicting.  This is a fun summer recipe that can be served on its own or with tortilla chips.  I made this and served with some tandoori chicken and buttered rice.  Its not what people might consider a right combo but hey...thats what food is, Mix and Match.  I love colorful food that feasts my eyes before it does to my tummy.



1 can sweet kernel corn, drained
1 can black bean, drained
1 small jalapeno, thinly cut
1 small shallot, cubed
1 tomato, cubed
1 roasted red pepper, cubed ( I had it roasted earlier and peeled off the skin)
1 mango, skinned and cut into cubes
2 tbsp lemon juice or more depending on your taste
few sprigs of cilantro, chopped
drizzle of olive oil
salt and pepper

Stir all ingredients together and drizzle olive oil.  Season to taste.  Refrigerate.

As easy as that...enjoy.
