Black Bean Corn Avocado Salad is full of fresh summer produce and is a real crowd pleaser at potlucks and summer barbecues! This hearty salad has a simple lime-cumin-maple vinaigrette dressing and is fun served with tortilla chips or romaine lettuce leaves.
Is anyone else as excited as I am that it’s just about Summer?
Summer in the Pacific Northwest is pretty much the best. It’s beautiful, thanks to all that rain, and it’s generally pretty mild, though in the Portland area we do see some pretty hot days. We spend as much time as possible outside as a family, whether it’s hiking, day trips to the Oregon coast, or just riding bikes in the neighborhood. Wherever you are, I hope you soak up the Summer months!
However, just because it’s warm outside that doesn’t mean all I want to eat is leafy green salads, like some people say! 🙂 My family and I need sustenance for all our activities, and while leafy greens have a place, I need much more than that.
I love this black bean corn avocado salad for this very reason! It’s cold and perfect for hot summer days, but also super filling and satisfying, with plenty of protein, fat and carbohydrates to keep me going. Also, it has a super simple lime-maple-cumin vinaigrette that gives it extra “YUM” points….
