This is a simple recipe I whip up often: Black Bean Salad!
It's simple yet full of protein, complex carbs, making it your new eat better bestie that doubles as a fun dip!
Not only is this Mexican inspired dish nutrient dense and quick and easy to throw together in a snap, it's darn tasty too!
Boasting fresh cilantro and lime, I also like to add a bit of fresh sliced avocado for a creamier and richer flavor too! Serve it as a side, add it to a bed of greens, fold some into a wrap or serve it with your favorite multi-grain chips!
1, 15oz can whole kernel corn (look for one with no salt added)
1, 15oz. can black beans (rinsed)
1/2 avocado, diced (optional)
2-3 Tbsp. red onion, finely chopped
1 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 Lime, fresh squeezed
1 Tbsp. finely chopped cilantro
In a large mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and toss to coat well.
Place in refrigerator to marinate at least 30 minutes prior to serving.
Serve atop a small corn tortilla or pair it with multi-grain or corn tortilla chips!
Eat and Enjoy!
