Amazing cold salad full of protein and healthy vegetables, a perfect summer side dish!
1/3 cup of fresh lime juice
2 tbsp olive oil
1-2 cloves of minced garlic
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1/3 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp sugar
1 15 oz can of black beans
1 can of corn or 1 1/2 cups frozen corn
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1/2 yellow pepper, diced
2 tomatoes, diced
5-7 green onions chopped
1/3- 1/2 cup of freshly chopped cilantro
In a small container that has a lid, combine the first 7 ingredients. Put a lid on and shake it until it’s combined.
Rinse the black beans and corn, place into a bowl large enough to hold the salad.
Dice up all the pepper and onions and toss them in with the beans.
Now, if you are ready, and I mean NOW to serve that salad, chop up the avocado and tomatoes and add them into the bowl. Do not add these two ingredients until moments before serving, tomatoes weep liquid too much and avocados turn to brown mush.
Chop up the cilantro and add it in.
Pour the dressing over the salad and stir gently to cover all the ingredients and serve right away.
