Avocado, Black Bean, and Corn Salad (Vegan, Gluten Free)

This avocado, corn, and black bean salad is a great healthy southwest salad!  Perfect for a side with burritos or for Cinco De Mayo.

We have tacos at least once a week, and this is the perfect side dish to make along side them.

We keep all these ingredients on hand in the fridge/pantry, so throwing this together is a snap.  Since I’m usually chopping tomatoes, lettuce, and cilantro for taco toppings, its so easy to cut up a few extra to make this salad.  The salad is super fresh and has a great tangy flavor from the citrus in the dressing.

And if you have a few extra avocados around that need to be used up… doubling the recipe works just as well!  See note below for saving some salad for later in the week 🙂
