Serves: 8-10
Ingredients
  • 2 15 oz. cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 15 oz. can corn, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup purple onion, finely chopped (you can add more for an extra strong onion flavor!)
  • 2 limes, juiced (~4 Tbsp juice)
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro + extra for garnish if desired
  • ¼ tsp salt
Instructions
  1. Rinse and drain the black beans and corn. Gently pat dry and place in a medium size mixing bowl.
  2. Chop up the onion and cilantro and then gently fold into the mixture. next, drizzle the lime juice and salt over the mixture and combine in. You should be careful not to mash up the black beans when mixing.
  3. When ready to serve, dice the avocado and fold into the salad! Serve immediately and enjoy :)
Notes
Store leftovers in an air tight container in the fridge for up to 1 day once avocado has been added. The avocado will brown after being in the fridge so wait to add it in until right before serving. If you know you will only eat part on the salad at one time, only add avocado to part of it so the rest will stay fresh longer!
