Cowboy Caviar (Black Bean Salsa)

This is also called Texas caviar, and my theory for the "caviar" name is, regardless of what you call it, this is a dressed up fancier version of salsa. It is more than just tomatoes, it has beans, avocado, and corn. The ingredients are all tossed together in lime juice and a touch of vinegar. But it does have something in common with "regular" salsa --- it still goes great with chips!
