Black Bean & Corn Chunky Salsa

I made this for a potluck at work last week. It's always tough finding dishes that can be made the night before and still taste good but the flavors of these ingredients get better as they marinate in the fridge over night. This dish was inspired by this recipe I found on Pinterest with just a few changes,

1 can sweet kernel corn, drained
1 can black beans, drained & washed
 1/4 red onion, chopped
1/2 jalapeno, chopped finely
1 lime, juiced
1/4 red pepper, chopped
1/4 green pepper, chopped
2 roma tomatoes, chopped
1/4 cup cilantro leaves, chopped finely
2 tbsp virgin olive oil
Black pepper to taste
Avocado, chopped (optional topping)

What To Do:
Wash all fresh vegetables and chop/dice according the ingredients list. Mix all ingredients (except avocado) in a bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve. I refrigerated over night to get the flavors to blend together but 1-2 hours is sufficient. When ready to serve, add chopped avocado.
