I hope everyone is having an amazing week and excited for fourth of 
July weekend!  I don't know about you, but I can't wait to spend some time at the beach and have fun with family and friends.  So today I bring to you a recipe that is perfect for those summer BBQ's you're sure to be attending.  I have been making this black bean salsa recipe for years and it's always a crowd pleaser.  It's quick and simple to make, vegan, and actually pretty healthy so we can chow down without feeling guilty in our bikini. (Definite plus.)  Every time I have made this for a party people ask me for the recipe and are shocked to hear how easy it is to make.  I can't rave about this scrumptious concoction enough so keep reading to find out the simple recipe!

Ingredients:
  • 1 8oz. can whole kernel corn
  • 1 8oz. can black beans
  • ½ red onion diced
  • 1 seeded and diced tomato
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 Jalapeno finely diced
  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • Zest & juice of 1 lime
  • 1 Ripe avocado cut into small chunks
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • ½ tsp. cumin
  • 2 tbsp. Olive Oil
Combine all ingredients and let sit in fridge for 1 hr to allow flavors to marinate. 
Will stay well in fridge for three days, but best served day of with tortilla chips.

Had to take a break from all that chopping to give Oliver his obligatory belly rub.

And that is it!  Super easy to make, but a fresh recipe everyone is sure to love.  I hope you guys enjoyed this edition of Brazen Bites and I'm sure this salsa will pair well with all the BBQ fare and bomb pops we're sure to be consuming.  (Cough cough, and margaritas.)  Leave me a comment below letting me know your plans for the fourth of July, I would love to hear what you guys are up to!  Thanks for stopping by and happy fourth!!
