This avocado black bean salad is a great hearty southwestern side dish!  Perfect as a Taco Tuesday side dish, this simple salad is loaded with fresh corn, spices, herbs, and creamy avocado!

We have tacos at least once a week, and this avocado black bean salad 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 🙂

Make Avocado Black Bean Salad Vegetarian for a Plant-Based Version

This vegetarian black bean salad is a simple way to get extra veggies in your diet. I’m all about making recipes plant-based when I can. Vegetarian cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. By building meals around vegetarian pantry staples and swapping in a few plant-based ingredients you can make better meals for you and your family.

These easy and tasty recipes are fantastic meatless meals for your table.
