Avocado Black Bean Salad

When I first developed this recipe for a local grocery store, I called it Avocado Salad and added at least four avocados. In fiquiring the costing per serving for Sweets and Eats, I discovered it wasn’t affordable. So I added less avocados and kept the taste the same. It is great to serve as a meal by itself, on a salad plate or as a side for a Mexican meal. I love this salad just as my clients did. It has a lot of versatility; as you can see I used yellow tomatoes instead of red and I used green bell pepper right from the garden. If there is something you don’t like, leave it out. Make it yours- it’s one of those recipes. Enjoy!
