Black Bean, Avocado and Corn Salad Recipe
Black bean, avocado and corn salad
If you live in Chicago, check out Door to Door Organics. I’ve tried other organic delivery services and so far this is the best one that I’ve tried.
You can see what produce is coming if you log into your account on their website. I love this. With other services I never knew what I was getting which made meal planning and grocery shopping at the store more difficult.
You can substitute (up for 5 items for the small box). So if you need more of one fruit or vegetable you can change your order. I love this!
They offer add-ons. So if you want something else delivered, they have anything from dairy to meat products! All organic and some local.
You can put your order on hold, change to a bigger or smaller box as you need or skip an order. I love the flexibility.
Pay as you go. No need to pay ahead of time…which can be daunting and difficult on the wallet.
Look online for a $10 off your first order coupon!
I got everything in the picture below for about $35. All organic and mostly local.
Yesterday I explained all the great things about black beans. So I decided to make some salmon last night and to accompany it….
- Avocado, Black Bean and Corn Salad
- 1 15oz. can black beans, drained
- 1 15oz. can low-sodium corn, drained
- 2 avocados, chopped
- 1 lime, juices
- 1 Tablespoon cumin
- Salt and pepper to taste
- optional: cilantro, green onion, tomatoes
Combine all ingredients into a bowl and serve! How easy is that!
Nutrition Notes: This salad is packed with fiber and good fats (monounsaturated). It does not use oil so this cuts down on the fat and calories. Did you know avocado has more potassium than a banana? Avocados also provide nearly 20 essential nutrients, including fiber, Vitamin E, B-vitamins and folic acid. They have been shown to help lower cholesterol, regulate blood pressure, decrease the risk of heart disease and protect against breast cancer to name a few.
Taste Test: This is refreshing and light. I love lime juice and the addition of cumin gives it a perfect smokey flavor. You could easily use this as a taco topping. Enjoy!
