A Note from Feedfeed

This Black Bean Corn Salad is refreshingly light and super simple to make. Black beans, corn, diced tomatoes, onion, and creamy avocado are tossed and dressed with olive oil, lime juice, and salt and pepper. Finish it off with chopped cilantro for extra flavor and serve as a side or as a light lunch. This salad is a perfect make-ahead dish!
