Black Bean and Avocado Salad

371-1024x642

There are only so many plain green salads one can eat. I am always on the lookout for new, colorful, and healthy salads. Having a salad at least once a day,  is a convenient way to work in a few servings of vegetables. This particular salad recipe was given to me by a good friend last summer. It quickly became one of my favorite salads. This salad has lots of flavors, colors, and textures. It makes a very delicious counterpoint to any kind of meat.

Ingredients:

2 large avocados, chopped into cubes
1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can of corn, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup red onion, chopped
1 cup cherry tomatoes, chopped
1 cucumber, chopped
1/2 cup freshly chopped cilantro
2-3 tbs extra virgin olive oil
2 tbs freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

 

Directions:

1. Mix together all of the above ingredients.
2. In a small bowl whisk together olive oil and lemon/lime juice, salt and pepper.
3. Pour the dressing over salad and toss until evenly coated.

ENJOY!!!
