Fresh Black Bean Salsa

Sheila Nakata


A girlfriend and I went to an outdoor cafe where we ordered this dish. We were so pleased with the flavors and the light freshness, we just couldn't get enough. I came home and replicated the dish. I am asked to bring this side dish to every party, BB'q or get together we go to. Any combination of vegetables can be used but the ones listed below are my go to's. I hope you enjoy as much as we all do.
