Corn and Black Bean Salad

This is one of my favorite recipes to take to parties.   It can be used as a salsa and eaten with tortilla chips, or if you add a diced avocado and some grilled chicken or shrimp, it makes a lovely salad.

INGREDIENTS
2 cans black beans, drained and rinsed
4 cups corn kernels (fresh, frozen or canned)
1/2 cup chopped Cilantro
1/3 cup lime juice
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/4 cup finely chopped sweet red onion
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tablespoon cumin
4 cups diced fresh tomatoes
1 small (4 oz) can diced green chiles
optional:   Add hot sauce for a spicier salsa

DIRECTIONS
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.  Chill and serve.   Best if made an hour before serving to allow flavors to blend.
