Black Bean, Hominy & Corn Salsa

This light fresh "salsa" is really good with some light chips or as a topping for a salad or simply as a side item.  It's a great summer salsa to have as an appetizer for your backyard BBQ as well.  This recipe was adapted from the Pampered Chef.  This recipe is very easy to double or triple when having guests for dinner.  This recipe also gets tastier and tastier the longer you let it sit in the fridge, a few hours is best.
