This is the best salsa ever, not only high in protein but delicious too. This recipe was inspired by the third Blue Zone in the Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica.


-2 cans Black Beans

-1 Red Pepper (finely chopped)

-2 cups Organic Frozen Corn (non-GMO)

-1/4 cup chopped Sweet Onion

-1 cup sliced Black Olives

-Fresh Cilantro (as much as you wish)

-2 chopped Garlic Cloves


-1/2 cup Oil (preferably, grape seed or organic canola)

-6 tbsp Lime Juice

-1/4 Rice Vinegar

-2 tbsp of Sugar

-1/2-1 tsp Ground Cumin


Warm all the dressing ingredients together until dissolved. When cool, add the dressing to the salsa ingredients and enjoy alone, on a bed of lettuce or with organic (non-GMO, of course) corn chips!
