1 tsp kosher or sea salt
1 tsp of ground black pepper
1 tsp chili powder
2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp ground cumin

2 14oz cans Busch's Black Beans, drained and rinsed well
2 cups or cans of frozen sweet corn kernels or sweet corn, drained and rinsed in the case of cans.
1 small red bell pepper, diced
1 small green bell pepper, diced

In a small bowl, mix together balsamic vinegar, oil, salt, black pepper, sugar, cumin and chili powder. In a medium to large bowl, stir together all the vegetables. Toss with vinegar and oil mixture and garnish with cilantro. Add a good squeeze or two of fresh lime juice. Cover, and refrigerate for several hours; overnight is best.

Made up a batch of this and it's real tasty and looks just like Bruce's pic. One suggestion for others who make it would be to add the sugar a little at a time to your taste. The full amount is a little sweet to my tastebuds. Thanks for sharing it.

Later add on - the wife decided some avocado would be a good addition and it is.
