1can (15 oz)black beansdrained & rinsed
1can (11 oz)white shoepeg corndrained
1cuphalved cherry or grape tomatoes
1/4cupfinely chopped red onion
1/4cupfinely chopped cilantro
1tablespoonfresh lemon juice
1tablespoonfresh lime juice
Combine black beans, corn, tomatoes, avocado, red onion, and cilantro in a mixing bowl. Stir together to combine.
In separate small bowl, combine olive oil, lime & lemon juice, garlic, and salt. Stir with a fork and pour over the salad. Stir together until combined.
Let sit in fridge, covered, for 1-2 hours before serving so the flavor can develop. The avocado will not brown during the refrigeration time thanks to the citrus juices.
Corn : I love the shoepeg corn in this recipe but you can just use regular canned corn, fire roasted canned corn, or use fresh corn. Tomatoes : Half the tomatoes and then measure out 1 cup. Garlic : Use chopped garlic from a jar. Garlic paste from the tube. Use fresh garlic that you mince or press. You can even use garlic powder. Spicy? : Feel free to make this as spicy as you want. Add chili powder, cayenne pepper, or some chopped jalapeños. Fridge Time : The salad does need to refrigerate for 1-2 hours to develop the flavor. It won't taste as good right after making it. But after it sits in the fridge it is amazing. The avocado will not brown during the 1- 2 hours in the fridge.
