Black Bean & Corn Salad with Balsamic Vinegar Reduction

Author Notes: This salad is the perfect dish to take with you to any summer party! You can make it a day before (which is better, so the flavors can combine) and it lasts for 3-5 days in the fridge…if you even have leftovers after. The perfect side dish to go with kabobs, burgers, or any summer grilling favorite. Hope you like it!Kristina's Cooking
