Party Salsa

I call this recipe "party salsa" because a) it's great for parties b) it literally creates a party of flavor in your mouth. There are certainly variations that can be made, and, as always, my measurements are not exact. But this is the second time I've made it, and both times it has been delightful.
Party Salsa:

1 can black beans--drained and rinsed well
1/2 cup frozen sweet corn
1/3 cup red onion--small dice
1/2 cup sweet red bell pepper--small dice
1 jalapeno pepper-small dice
1 mango--medium dice
juice of 1 lime
2 cloves garlic--minced
a handful of cilantro-chopped
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1 ripe avocado--medium dice


1. Mix everything together in a bowl except the avocado.
2. Let the mixture sit for several hours, or overnight.
3. Add the avocado just before serving.
4. Serve with tortilla chips, fish tacos, and more.
