Famous Black Bean Summer Salsa

The famous black bean salsa everyone loves, with a SECRET healthy ingredient!

I made this for a BBQ, and decided to throw in a bunch of chopped baby kale…guess what?

Everyone is so used to eating it with the green cilantro, that nobody even noticed! Win!

  • 2 ears of fresh corn, husked and kernels chopped from the cob
  • 8 roma (plum) tomatoes, diced
  • 1 small orange, and/or green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
