Black Bean Salad

This is one of my favorite throw-together-because-I-have-no-desire-to-stand-over-a-stove-all-afternoon-recipes. Scrumptious flavors, and a surprisingly hearty dish. This is another one that would be great accompanied by some corn bread! :)


1 (15 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 cups frozen corn, defrosted
1/c cup chopped green onions
3 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1 avocado, peeled and diced
1/2 cup fresh cilantro
2 tbsp lime juice (or about half a lime)
2 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp sugar
salt & pepper, to taste

There is no cooking! Just chop, dice, peel and stir it all together. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Best if chilled before serving, though I would recommend adding the avocado right before serving.

As a side, or main attraction, this salad can be served however your heart desires!

**The picture is shown with red onions, but I prefer the more subtle taste of green onions.
