    This is a great recipe! Thanks for sharing! I can’t wait to try this!! One of my go-to healthy recipes is a corn and bean salsa:
    10 oz of frozen corn
    1 can of black beans
    1 orange pepper
    1 onion
    1 bunch of cilantro
    1/3 to 1/2 of a bottle of Newman’s Own Balsamic Vinaigrette
    Tortilla chips
    It tastes great right away, but if you let it sit for an hour or so before serving the flavors are brought out a bit more.
