Tomato & Black Bean Salsa

By contributing writer Kristia

Tomato season has arrived in my garden, and my favorite way to celebrate is by making homemade Tomato &  Black Bean Salsa. But don’t limit this fresh salsa to tortilla chips. It also pairs well on top of grilled fish or chicken.

Tomato & Black Bean Salsa


  • 3 cups chopped fresh tomatoes
  • 1 bell pepper, any color, chopped
  • 1 small hot pepper, such as a jalapeno, chopped (optional)
  • 1 cup chopped red onions
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 3/4 cup frozen corn, thawed or 1 ear cooked corn on the cob, cut corn off the cob
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Allow the tomatoes to drain in a colander while you prepare the other ingredients.
  2. Combine all of the ingredients together in a large bowl.
  3. Chill or eat immediately.


If the salsa has too much liquid from the tomatoes, pour the salsa through a strainer or colander.
