Corn Bean Salsa

Our very first Neighbors in Iowa became very dear friends of ours. We started a tradition of getting together for dinner and all the recipes we made had to be ones we had never tried before.  They had taken a trip to Santa Fe and while there went to a cooking class.  They brought back this recipe and we have been loving it for many years since!
(I always double this recipe since we usually have a house full!)
This is better the day after you make it!

1/2 cup finely chopped onion
1 t. minced garlic
2T olive oil

In a bowl combine:
3 T chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 t cumin powder
1 jalapeno minced ( I remove seeds)
2 T Cider Vinegar
1 T Honey
1 T chili powder
1 t salt
3/4 cup of drained can corn
3 large roma tomatoes or (i use one can of petite diced can tomatoes drained)
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed

Lightly Saute Onion and Garlic in oil. Combine all ingredients. Stir well. Let stand one hour to blend flavors!
