Every evening Josh asks me what I want for dinner, lately my answer has been watermelon and sweet corn. I can’t get enough! We have a local produce stand by our house so I frequently send Josh down the road to pick up sweet corn for dinner. I’ve made a Grilled Sweet Corn Salad, but we usually eat the ears plain with watermelon. I love simple summer suppers:) The other night I decided to mix things up and make Black Bean Corn Salsa with our fresh sweet corn.
This salsa is super easy to make. If you don’t have fresh sweet corn, you can use frozen or canned corn, but fresh corn is best. I mixed together black beans, sweet corn, green onions, garlic, tomatoes, jalapeño, cilantro, and lime. I love how fresh and filling this salsa is. We served it with Homemade Baked Tortilla Chips. It makes a great appetizer, side dish, healthy snack, or even dinner. We had chips and salsa with watermelon for dinner. It was the perfect summer meal.
