Black Bean and Corn Salsa

No disrespect to store-bought salsa, but this simple, homemade black bean-and-corn version is so much better. You can also toss it with chopped romaine and grilled chicken to make a satisfying salad or taco filling. Can’t get fresh corn? Use 1 1/2 cups thawed frozen corn in place of the fresh.
