Valerie's Review REVIEW: September 15, 2007 We agree with the other review that this recipe really is quite good! It's easy to assemble and definitely needs to let the flavors develop overnight. To jazz it up, we added a finely minced habanero (only do that if you like heat!!) but any hot pepper would be fine.

Mix this sassy salsa to have ready when you want an easy snack. With the beans and corn you get a snack packed with protein. This salsa can also be used as a salad topping for a nutritious low fat alternative to salad dressing. This is a wonderful alternative to the tomato based salsas.

If you want an appetizer that will wow your guests this recipe is for you. There are so many ways you can make variations to adapt this to everyone's taste. You can turn up the heat by adjusting the amount of crushed red pepper you use. You can divide this in half to make a hotter version or don't add any crushed red pepper at all. For best results ensure you allow this to refrigerate overnight.

A black bean/corn salsa that will be a delight for parties, watching your favorite sporting event and just for a light healthy snack with tortilla chips. When I serve it there isn't a drop left.

This recipe is a great hit as an appetizer, for any occasion. You make it the day before you want to serve it and its super easy to make! All you have to do is mix all the ingredients together and let them sit in the fridge over night to really bring out the flavor! This is the perfect recipe for someone on the go! I like it because you can also add ingredients to this to make it your own special kind.

Who doesn't love Mexican? This recipe is a snap because you make it the day before for best flavor. Just take it out at meal time and dig in! If you don't have a fresh green chili on hand and like an extra zip, you can substitute a small can of diced green peppers.
Guest Foodie June 30, 2014 REVIEW:
Excellent bean and corn salsa. Frozen corn really brightens and freshens up the flavor. I always chop in 1-2 serrano peppers for medium heat.

Let's face it, salsa is the most delicious thing in the world. However, this black bean and corn salsa really takes salsa to another level. It is hearty and delicious, great for game-day, or just general snacking! I always add two green chili peppers, but I like my salsa HOT. Serve with nachos or corn chips, quesadillas or as a burrito!

Easily at least 5 stars! Easy to make, healthy, and goes like wildfire @ any gathering!
ronnie July 1, 2013 REVIEW:
Very good recipe. I used canned corn instead of frozen and added a chopped jalapeno.
biscottiria May 27, 2012 REVIEW:
made like recipe except I only had a fresh lemon. WOW! Better than expected! I love it because most salsa recipes contain OIL. This is a keeper for sure and also I love that it is so Fresh tasting with the citrus.
Guest Foodie June 21, 2011 REVIEW:
This recipe was very easy and quick to make and it was delicious. I also added fresh diced tomatoes and it was a nice touch.

Salsa Lover July 24, 2009 REVIEW:
I was in the mood for a corn and black bean salsa. I found this recipe and had all but 3 ingredients in my home. IT IS AMAZING. I'm not a cook and have been known to mess up specifically measured recipes... but this came out PERFECTLY. My friend and I liked it so much we ate almost half of it in one sitting. UTTERLY AMAZING. The recipe is perfectly proportioned and it tastes FANTASTIC. I'd give 6 stars if I could!!!!
Guest Foodie May 8, 2009 REVIEW:
Love this recipe. I am asked to bring this to all the family get togethers. My child eats it with a spoon. I always add a jalapeno and an avocado. Gives it a little spark.

hinsok1 November 25, 2008 REVIEW:
Loved this recipe. Others have said not to change it. I disagree. While is is wonderful just as it is, I like it even better when I add a can of drained garbanzo beans and a can of diced tomatos.
drewsa9 February 14, 2008 REVIEW:
I searched recipes for corn salsa and this is the first one to come up. I got lucky. Everytime I make it I have to do a double batch because everyone in my extended family wants some. Two have confessed to eating it with a spoon. I agree that variations are a mistake. For best results follow recipe exactly. Great to bring to vegan gatherings.
Shelly August 12, 2006 REVIEW:
I first made this for a graduation family dinner for 20 to eat as a salad with a spoon. As leftovers it was great with tortilla chips. Leftovers lasted about 4 days in the frig. I even ate it with potatoe chips, yum! The second time I made it, I didnt' follow the preportions of the 'sauce' exact and it wasn't as good, so follow the recipe!!
In Italian, orzo means "barley". It's a small, rice shaped pasta typically made from semolina. It is commonly found in soups or salads but it's grown in popularity and uses over the last few years so you often see it used more like rice such as in risotto or pilafs.
