Ingredients

Dijon-lime dressing (makes 1/4 cup)
  • tablespoons avocado oil
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Salad
  • 1 pint assorted cherry tomatoes, halved
  • One 15-ounce can low-sodium black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 Hass avocado, pitted, peeled and diced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped red onion
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Chef notes

    Our family calls this a "BlaVaMato" salad, which stands for black beans, avocado and tomatoes. These fresh ingredients get tossed together to make a killer mosh pit of a hearty salsa-inspired salad.

    Preparation

    For the dressing:

    Whisk together the ingredients in a small bowl or shake them in a jar (store in the fridge for up to 30 days).

    For the salad:

    Combine the tomatoes, black beans, avocado, onion and cilantro in a large bowl. Drizzle a small amount of the dressing over the salad and toss gently to coat. Add more dressing as needed. Serve cold.
