Ingredients

  • 15 oz. can black beans
  • 8 oz. cherry tomatoes
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1 orange bell pepper
  • 1/3 cup red onion
  • 3/4 cup loosely packed cilantro (stems removed)
  • 1 avocado
  • Juice from 1 large orange
  • Juice from 1 1/2 limes
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin (or more to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp. agave
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • Optional: cayenne pepper or chipotle for a kick!

Instructions

  1. Make the dressing: in a small bowl, whisk together all ingredients until agave/honey is incorporated. It should yield about 1/2 cup dressing. Set aside.
  2. Finely dice red onion. Dice bell pepper and tomatoes. Roughly chop cilantro, stems removed.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the beans (rinsed and drained), tomato, corn (thawed if frozen), red onion, bell pepper, and cilantro.
  4. Add the dressing and toss to combine.
  5. Best if chilled 1 hour (can be longer) before serving.
  6. Stir well before serving, as some of the dressing gathers at the bottom.
  7. Top with diced avocado right before serving.
