Avocado and Black Bean Salad

I love recipes you can just throw together at the last minute. I also love to find a salad recipe that can double as a vegetarian meal. This recipe does both those things.

1 can of black beans, rinsed and drained
1 1/2 cups frozen corn (or leftover cooked fresh corn removed from cob, if you have it)
2 tomatoes, chopped
1 avocado, cut into bite sized pieces
3 T. balsamic vinegar
3 T. olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

With a wisk (or fork), blend vinegar and oil until well mixed. Stir in remaining ingredients and let sit a few minutes for the corn to thaw in the dressing. Enjoy!

Are avocados still in season?

Nice and cheap too, for us poor ones.

Talk about gourmet, Sue! This recipe sounds fantastic. I could even use this over a pork loin. Yummy. I love to cook and I am always trying new things!
I just love when I get a comment from you.
Thanks, friend.

This really looks like a salad that would become a favorite at my house. My husband just brought home a bag with avocados the other day, and we are waiting for them to ripen.
