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.

Very good recipe. I used canned corn instead of frozen and added a chopped jalapeno.

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.

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!!!!

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.

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.
