Recommendations for Making Black Bean and Corn Salsa

I use canned corn for this recipe but if it is in season you can use fresh corn. You can even roast the corn or make a version of Mexican Street Corn. They even make a great canned roasted corn.

Additionally, you can use frozen corn, just make sure that it has been thawed first.
