My Aunt Jody shared this recipe with me. I had really liked her Black Bean Salsa, but I am not a big fan of vinegar - in fact, I rather detest it - so when I got the recipe, I decided to decrease or eliminate the vinegar. I tried it, but almost immediately changed my mind. The cider vinegar is an essential part of the flavor of this delicious salsa, an admission that I never thought to make about any recipe! - Betsy
