Black Bean, Avocado, Cherry Tomato & Jalapeno Salad
Black Bean, Avocado, Cherry Tomato & Jalapeno Salad

Tweak, tweak, tweak.  That’s what most of us recipe-creating, home cooks do a lot of in the kitchen.  I make a lot of salads.  I really love them and when it’s warm outside, it’s the perfect dinner.  I recently posted one of my black bean salads that is sweetened with corn and a little sugar.  It’s delicious, but not as good for you as this version.  This one is really my favorite and it’s better for you.  That’s called a win for me. I’m also pretty excited any time that Jalapeno is added. 🙂

Black Bean, Avocado, Cherry Tomato & Jalapeno Salad

2-15 oz cans of Organic Black Beans-Drained and rinsed
2 tbsp of minced Jalapeno Pepper (usually 1/2 of a large pepper)
1/2 cup chopped, fresh cilantro (approximately half of a bunch)
1 pint of cherry tomatoes-washed and cut in half
2 large Avocados-cut in 1 inch cubes
Juice of 2 large Lemons
Juice of 2 Limes
Salt and pepper to taste

Toss all ingredients in one bowl and serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.  This can be served as a summer side dish, with tortilla chips or by itself.  Enjoy!
