Corn,black bean and avocado salad

Back home from an evening run , i was relaxing and contemplating what to eat for a light light dinner. Salad with some carbs fitted my idea well. So i headed to my farmland , my fridge .. and i  instantly had a "yum yum ! at first sight " with the innocent avocados, corn and lime..

Super quick and easy.


  • 1 Avocado, seeded and diced
  • 1/4 Red onion, sliced thin
  • 3/4 cup, corn kernels
  • 1/2 cup Black beans
  • Handful of fresh coriander/cilantro leaves
  • ( recommended additions- sweet red bell pepper and juicy mangoes)

  Quick vinaigrette:

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of a lemon or lime
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin powder
  • 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
Start by mixing and making a vinaigrette . Keep aside

Now open the can of beans, rinse and drain. Take a bowl and mix the corn , beans, avocado, onions and cilantro and pour over the vinaigrette. Avocados turn dark immediately once peeled and diced so u would want to pour the vinaigrette sooner.

Savour the creamy ,crunchy, tart and sweet salad.   Enjoy
