Prep time

15

minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 can of beans (your choice)

  • 2 teaspoons white balsamic vinegar

  • 1 avocado, diced into pieces ½ inch square

  • 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice (or more if you’re using two avocados)

  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes or cherry tomatoes cut in half

  • ½ cup finely chopped red onion

  • ½ cup finely chopped cilantro (more or less to taste)

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil, or a bit more

  • fresh ground black pepper and sea salt to taste

Method

  • Rinse the beans well with cold water until no more foam appears. Let the beans drain well for at least 10-15 minutes.
  • Blot the beans dry with a paper towel, place in a plastic bowl, and toss with white balsamic vinegar. Let the beans marinate in the vinegar while you prep other ingredients.
  • Cut avocado into ½ inch pieces and place in a small bowl. Toss with lime juice. (Remember to double the lime juice if you use two avocados.)
  • Chop tomatoes, or if using cherry tomatoes, cut in half or quarters.
  • Chop red onion and cilantro.
  • Mix onions and cilantro into marinating beans. Then use a large spoon to gently fold in avocado and tomato.
  • Drizzle olive oil over salad and season to taste with fresh ground black pepper and sea salt, and gently toss again. Taste to see if you want a little more olive oil or lime juice.
  • Serve immediately, at room temperature.
