Black Bean & Veggie Salad


Black Bean & Veggie Salad

Ingredients:

  • 1 can black beans (drained & rinsed)
  • 1 can corn (drained & rinsed)
  • 1 cucumber (sliced & quartered)
  • 1 green bell pepper (chopped)
  • 1 red bell pepper (chopped)
  • 5 roma tomatoes (chopped)
  • 1/3 red onion (diced)
  • 1/4 bunch of cilantro (diced)
  • 1 large avocado or 2 smaller avocados (diced)
  • 1 lime (cut into quarters)
  • balsamic vinegar (about 1-2 TBS)
  • salt (to taste)
Mix everything except the lime, balsamic vinegar, and salt together in a big bowl.  Squeeze all of the lime juice from the lime over the salad and mix.  Add a splash of balsamic vinegar and mix.  Add salt to taste and mix.

Yield: A very large bowl of fresh salad.  Definitely big enough to take to a big family potluck.  Or to enjoy lots and lots of by yourself at home.  :)



We made up this fresh yummy salad last night to take with us when we went to visit out good friends Emily & Richard.  What I thought would just be a nice little salad ended up being a nice BIG salad.  Halfway through chopping and dicing we had to transfer the salad from the medium size bowl we were using to a 32 cup bowl.  It wasn't filled to the brim, but it was pretty full.  

The four of us ate quite a bit of it during dinner and I kept munching on it by myself after we got back.  It was so fresh and yummy!
