Avocado Salad

5 mins (prep 5)

I love this salad! It's got a little bite to it, yet the fresh tomatoes, lime and black beans mellow and compliment the spiciness just perfectly. I have to admit that I accidentally forgot to add the black beans when I served it last night. When I realized it this morning, I added an appropriate amount to the leftover salad, photographed and ate it. Aside from the avocado being a little less pretty, the leftovers were even better, as the dressing ingredients had married well overnight. I had mini bell peppers to use up, so I used both orange and yellow peppers in this recipe. With and without beans, this was a refreshing and delicious salad. It's also very beautiful and was complimented on that as well. Thanks for sharing this recipe, X! Made and enjoyed for Spring 2012 Pick A Chef. You've been adopted! :D
