  • 1 cup (about 5¾ oz.) canned black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 cup (about 5 oz.) diced jícama

    Crisp jícama, sweet corn, and black beans come together in a refreshing salsa.

    • Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Run the back of a knife along cobs on all sides while holding over the bowl to extract the corn milk. Toss all ingredients and let stand for 20 minutes. Adjust the seasoning and toss before serving.
