I am tempted to call this Magic Avocado Salad because it disappears so flipping quickly that it’s almost like magic!! It is also one of the easiest and quickest salads out there. And look! It’s very pretty.

Here’s what you do.

Take a can of organic black beans and rinse (or if you are a much better cook than I, use fresh beans, a cup or more depending on how beany you would like it to be). Layer on about a dozen organic baby tomatoes, quartered and de-seeded. Add one red pepper sliced and chopped and about 1/4 cup of diced red onion. Finally add 2 or more avocados, cubed. Drizzle on a mixture of the juice of one lime, 1/4 cup minced cilantro, 1/4 cup good quality EVOO and about a tsp of salt.

Eat. Quick. I have served this 3 times this year at various events and all 3 times I have gotten the dregs at the bottom of the bowl. Or better yet, cut the recipe in half and just eat it yourself! The Hubs was moaning that he didn’t even get any at Chrismakkah. Looks like I will be making it again this week.  Mmmmmmm.
