Now you may be used to the typical tomato salsa, which is excellent. With this recipe, we're switching it up and making a quick, filling, and easy Black Bean Salsa high in plant-based protein and fiber. The black beans are tossed with diced avocado, sweet corn, fresh lime juice, ground cumin, red onions, chopped cilantro, cherry tomatoes, jalapeños, sea salt & crushed black peppercorns.

Fill a medium-sized pot with water and place it onto the stovetop on high heat. 

Once the water comes to a boil, add the corn into the water and boil for 3 minutes. 

Remove the corn from the water using a pair of kitchen tongs, and place it onto a cutting board to rest until the corn is cool enough to handle.  

Once the corn is cooled off, use a chef's knife to cut the corn off the cob, and place the kernels into a mixing bowl

Add the remaining salsa ingredients to the bowl containing the corn. 

Use a large spoon to mix everything together, and place the salsa into an airtight container to chill until ready to serve.
