Black Bean, Corn and Avocado Salad
This quick and easy salad has corn, black beans, avocados, tomatoes, cucumbers and onions. It is seasoned with cumin and oregano. It makes a quick and easy summer supper. Since It has been so incredibly hot here in Florida, and I have been trying to make more salads that serve as main course dishes. This recipe was sent to to me by my sister-in-law. It looked so good, I just had to make it the next day. I made a few modifications, like changing green onions for red onions, and using fresh oregano instead of dried. I have planted some herbs in containers on my patio that come in very handy.
