Recipe for Black Beans and Corn Salad

It doesn't get more satisfying than this....black beans combined with sweet corn, ripe avocado, juicy tomatoes, and sweet vidalia with a few key ingredients. Around these parts this dish doesn't last too long since some eat it as their main course (no shame)! ________________________________________________________________________

1 can rinsed black beans

1 ripe avocado, cubed

1 ripe tomato, cubed

1/2 medium vidalia onion (red onion may be substituted), cubed 

Juice of 1/2 to a whole lime

Splash of apple cider vinegar 

2 teaspoons olive oil or to taste (you can substitute with any oil that you prefer)

1 teaspoon chopped cilantro (if desired)

1/2 teaspoon oregano (if desired)

1/4 teaspoon cumin (if desired)

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder 

Dash of cayenne

Salt and pepper to taste

_________________________________________________________________________

Combine ingredients. Let sit for 10-15 minutes to allow flavors to meld. Refrigerate after serving. Enjoy!

Optional additional spices: Cumin,* Basil*

* These are both big flavors, so be sure to start small!
