Black Bean and Corn Salsa Recipe

This Black Bean and Corn Salsa is full of vibrant colors. It goes great for any summer party, an event that you may be hosting, or at your next taco night!

Black Bean and Corn Salsa is one of my favorite dips. We love serving it in the summertime when corn is at its freshness.

If you love having a taco night, serve the black bean and corn salsa with our Carne Asada and Homemade Tortillas. This makes an impressive combo.

All ingredients for the black bean and corn salsa

The great thing about the corn and bean salsa is that it's wildly versatile; you can skip or replace any ingredients to your own liking. For the dressing, I like to add Italian dressing to replace the lime juice. It really depends on your cravings.

For extra flavor, we give corn a bit more grilling color on the outside. You can do this to tomatoes and peppers as well. It gives salsa that smoky feel.

How long does black bean and corn salsa last?

As long as it's kept refrigerated and kept in a sealed container, the black bean salsa will stay fresh for at least 24 hours.

Tip: If you can delay the avocado until right before serving, this would lengthen the freshness of the salsa.
