Black Bean, Corn and Avocado Salad

Black Bean, Corn and Avocado Salad  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.

the juice of 1 lime
2 tablespoons olive oil
the leaves from 2 - 3 sprigs of fresh oregano (I had some growing on the patio)

    now this is my kind of salad, thank your sister-in-law – love everything about it, even the red onions…

    Great salad and an amazing photo Angie. That is my kind of eating. I would have changed out the green onions for red onion too, good choice! It always amazed me how Haas avocados have a much deeper flavor than Florida avocados. I had a boss who would never use Florida avocados in the restaurant. She called them flat!

    Corn and avocado are such wonderful vegetables/fruits, and I love how the black beans give the dish some extra nutrition. I can imagine eating this with a big bowl of chips or some freshly made flour tortillas. Such great colors too!

    A great summer alternative to the boring salad. It went great with my grilled steak and a beer!

      gotta love steak and beer!

    Hooray for using canned corn! Even if it wasn’t a hot day, I wouldn’t be any too keen on cooking fresh corn “just” to go into salad.

    • Angie — August 5, 2010 @ 7:07 am

      I know, I like fresh corn, but why heat up the house?

  25. sally — September 11, 2012 @ 4:54 pm

    When I printed this it took like 6 pages and lots of ink printing all your ads first instead of the recipe. please fix!

  26. alexis — September 11, 2012 @ 4:56 pm

    This took like 15 pages when it printed including all the ads, comments. It was ridiculous. Very discouraging.

    • Angie — September 12, 2012 @ 10:27 am
