Black Bean Salsa

Written by Cooking Naturally Editors on May 29th, 2011


This is definitely my favorite go-to-dip.  It’s different from your normal salsa in that it’s nice and chunky, and it isn’t spicy.  It’s just fresh and fabulous, and full of pretty colors!  Truly a plethora of nutrients for your palate to enjoy.  You can serve it as a dip with chips, a topping for salad/chicken, or a filling for burritos/quesadillas/tacos, etc.  Believe it or not, it even tastes better the next day!  But ours never makes it that long…


  • 3 roma tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 avocados, chopped
  • 2-3 green onions, chopped
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can black olives, drained and sliced/chopped
  • 1 can’s worth of frozen corn
  • handful of cilantro, finely chopped (opt)
  • 1-3 t. minced garlic
  • olive oil, 3 times around the bowl
  • balsamic vinegar, 2 times around the bowl (or to taste)
  • salt & pepper, to taste

  1. Combine all the ingredients into a bowl.  Keep cool until ready to serve.
