avocado black bean salad // white corn + cherry tomatoes

Avocado Black Bean Salad
This salad has been a staple of ours for the past 2 summers. We take it camping, serve it alongside burger s + dogs or simply scoop it up with a bowl full of sweet potato tortilla chips (these chips are life changing from Food Should Taste Good!). 

 It also a must for Taco Tuesday. 

No cooking required and a mere 10 minutes of your time- it's a Summer win all around!


Avocado Black Bean Salad
It goes without staying it is best during peak tomato + corn season- which for us, is now. Any cherry tomato works and I LOVE sweet white corn or butter + sugar corn in this recipe.

Avocado and black beans round out the dish and a bit of salt, cumin and lime is all you need for seasoning.

Throw it in a bowl, give it a toss and you are good to go.

When I make this for Camping I store it in a tight lidded mason jar filled to the top,  it keeps well up to 4 days in the sealed mason jar. The lime keeps the avocado from turning brown as well.

  4. Yummy! I'd love to prepare and taste this salad as soon as possible. Can I use regular sized tomatoes instead of cherry tomatoes?
