Mango, Corn & Black Bean Salsa

Every summer when the produce gets really ripe I crave this super addictive, colorful salsa – a recipe I picked up from my friend Colleen back in the day and tweaked to my liking. There are lots of variations of corn salsa out there (like Anne’s!) but I like to load mine with pretty much every salsa ingredient under the sun to get a mix of crunchy and soft, sweet and savory with a little spice to kick it up.  Definitely buy thick tortilla chips to serve with it so that you can pile all the goods onto your chip without it breaking!
