  • 2 large avocados, pitted and diced
  • 2 medium tomatoes, chopped (Can sub for 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved)

  • 1/2 cucumber, chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, minced
  • 1/2 cup corn
  • 1/2 cup black beans

Citrus Dressing

  • 3 tbs lime juice (1 or 2 lime's worth)
  • 1.3 cup olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1 dash hot sauce


  • Whisk together dressing ingredients.
  • Optional but helpful to prevent browning: Toss the avocados in the dressing, then transfer avocados to the mixing bowl.
  • Add the rest of the salad ingredients, then pour the dressing over everything. Toss to coat.
  • Serve immediately, or chill and serve. It's also a great lunch salad you can prep in the morning or the night before.


If you're one of those folks for whom salads don't feel like a meal without some meat, try adding a handful of crispy chopped bacon. It's a great texture and wonderful flavor.
