Black Bean, Avocado and Pineapple salsa

Author Notes:

So far, I've served this salsa with halibut, swordfish and tuna, but I suspect chicken and pork would also marry happily, or chips. It tastes better after the ingredients have spent some time together, so feel free to bring it along to a BBQ, a picnic or camping.

Hi! I made this recipe and we loved it! Especially my husband, who insisted on adding jalapeno and sweet red pepper; there are so many way to use this salsa. I know I will be making this again...thanks for sharing your recipe :)
