Fresh Black Bean Salsa

This salsa is better than anything you will buy in a jar! It’s delicious, quick, and uses all fresh ingredients that you might already have in your kitchen. If you don’t want to serve it with chips, try it with cucumbers, celery or jicama. It would also make a great topping for tacos!

I do some moderate exercise every day in addition to doing my usual activities. For example, I walk about 1.5 to 3 miles a day at about 3 to 4 miles an hour. Or I do something else that's moderately active.

I am very active every day in addition to doing my usual activities. For example, I walk more than 3 miles a day at about 3 to 4 miles an hour. Or I do something else that's very active.
