Avocado & Black Bean Salad

Avocado, black beans, tomato, onion and cilantro dressed with olive oil, garlic and lime making this salad a healthy nutritious choice for a side dish or a filling meal. 
Avocado & Black Bean SaladI shared my tomato avocado salad a few weeks ago and I’ve gotten so many emails and Instagram tags from you guys, telling me how much you enjoyed it! So today I’m sharing another delicious avocado salad. This salad is loaded with black beans, avocado, tomato, onion and cilantro. It’s my tex-mex twist on the classic avocado salad so adding corn, olives, or minced cucumber will make a great addition!

The salad is dressed in an olive oil, garlic and lime dressing and the lime helps keep the avocados nice and vibrant green. If you’re making this the night before, dice up everything else and add the avocados and dressing the last-minute.

If you’ve never had an avocado salad before, this is a great way to try it. Avocados are packed with hearty healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, fiber and antioxidants. Eating avocados can also lower cholesterol levels and help you lose weight!

    OMG, to die for! I LOVED THIS RECIPE!!!! I made it tonight and everyone loved it. I added some ingredients to make it a meal with things I had on hand, like shaved corn off the cob (2), and grilled chicken strips cut into bites. Yum. Then I decided, hmm. this would be good as a dip too! So I got my bag of Tostito’s multi grain scoop chips! Doesn’t get better than that! This is an absolute keeper!!! I will be making this again and again, and again. Thank you for Posting this!!!!

    What would be a good substitute for avacado? Cannellini beans? I love this salad but I’m curious if I could make a version without avacado for my husband, he’s allergic.
