Black Bean Salad with Avocado & Lime Dressing

Black Bean Salad with Avocado & Lime Dressing

There are a billion Black Bean salad recipes out there.  Everyone I know has their own version, especially with corn in the recipe.  We love this Black Bean corn and feta salsa recipe and think you will too. 

What we love about this black bean salad is that you can make it all year round using frozen corn, but why not take advantage of fresh produce of summer and use fresh corn. In fact, we used leftover corn from a night we made too much.

We loved this so much my daughter made it one day when we were having company and I decided to make it a few days later because it was soooo good.  While we have been eating Keto recently, so this sort of wrecks the low carb meal plan but so worth it.

Some folks don’t care for Cilantro so you can also use parsley in this recipe for a different flavor profile.  

The dressing is what makes this a little different from our other Corn & Black Bean salad.
