Avocado, Corn & Black Bean Salad Recipe

Avocado, Corn & Black Bean Salad

I made some delicious Imitation Crab Cakes the other day and needed JUST the right side dish for them. That’s where this Avocado, Corn & Black Bean Salad came in. I wanted something light and refreshing that complimented the crab cakes well but still had tons of flavor itself. I love that this salad includes minimal, simple ingredients. And it’s topped with a zesty dressing that pulls everything together into one scrumptious salad.


Avocado, Corn & Black Bean Salad

The salad itself consists of fresh avocados, onions, canned black beans and corn. You’ll simply chop the onions and avocados, drain the corn and black beans, and place everything into a large salad bowl. You’ll then prepare the dressing in a separate smaller bowl. The dressing consists of olive oil, lime juice, garlic, salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper. After blending the ingredients for the dressing, you’ll pour it over the salad and mix until all the vegetables are coated evenly.
