Directions

  1. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Place ears onto the heated grill; roast corn until husks show burn marks on all sides and corn kernels are cooked through, about 20 minutes. Turn ears of corn often.
  3. Let corn ears cool until they can be handled; pull back husks and cut the roasted kernels from the ears. Place kernels into a large salad bowl.
  4. Lightly toss corn with black beans, plum tomatoes, green bell pepper, red onion, jalapeno peppers, lime juice, cilantro, and garlic. Pour tomato juice and tomato sauce over the salsa; toss again. Season with kosher salt and black pepper.
  5. Chill salsa at least 1 hour, preferably overnight.

First time I made the salsa as written, it was good. I made it again with the beans on hand, which were not low-sodium and I have to say, it tasted even better. I did rinse the beans to rid them of excess salt, and it may just be me but I could tell the difference. We used it to top tacos, in quesadillas as well as a dip for chips. Also, I added just a dash of cayenne. It's now a raceday staple. Thanks for posting it.

Great salsa! I used canned diced tomatoes, and instead of tomato juice, I just used the liquid from the tomatoes, which worked well. Only regular black beans on hand, so I used those. I had to use canned corn, so I dried it very well and sort of 'roasted' it in a pan (I know it's not the same, but it worked). Everyone really enjoyed this...I will def be making it again~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
