Corn and Black Bean Salad

This colourful, flavorful, high-fiber salad is sure to become a favorite!


1 can (19 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
8 oz whole-kernel corn, drained
1 cup of chopped tomatoes
1/2 cup green onions
cilantro to taste (optional)
2 Tbsp freshly squeezed lime juice
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp each salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/8 each ground cumin and chili powder (*see tip below)
1 cup diced avocado (*see tip below)


Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Serve immediately.

*Tip: for added “kick” try chipotle chili powder. Since avocado turns brown very quickly, peel, sliced and add it to the salad just before serving. Serves 4
