Summer Corn, Avocado, and Black Bean Salad

It’s funny how much our taste buds change over time.  I used to be such a picky eater and wouldn’t touch anything new.  I was convinced that black beans and avocado weren’t for me!  I am so glad I became more adventurous with my eating because my health has come such a long way as a result.  This salad is so simple but so delicious! It is colorful, refreshing, and packed with nutrients.  Typically salad dressings can ruin a perfectly good salad with all of their questionable ingredients, but this dressing is light and healthy and gives it the perfect amount of flavor.  Enjoy!

Ingredients

Veggies:

  • 1 3/4 cup thawed frozen or fresh sweet corn
  • 40 cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 15 oz. can of black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2 avocados, diced
  • 1 red onion, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped (use the stems too!)

Dressing:

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced (or 2 limes)
  • 1-2 tsp. cumin
