Black Bean Avocado Salsa

Recipe by  

"This has to be my favorite summer salsa. It's colorful and fresh tasting. It makes a bunch, so invite some friends over. I like to take the lime after it's been juiced and rub down the bowl I will be serving the salsa in. I also rub the lime on the plastic wrap this will help keep the avocados from turning brown. Don't forget the tortilla chips!"

I put this into a warmed flour tortilla with hot Mexican chicken breast pieces. Chipotle move over! I would always get their chicken burrito with black beans, corn salsa and guacamole. This tasted just as awesome but was even better because it was fresher and cheaper. And super easy. Only change: no red wine vinegar.

This is very delicious. I use it on tostadas with shredded rotisserie chicken, in tortillas for burritos or as a dip. It is so bright, summery & flavorful. Lasts several days in the refrigerator & tastes better with time! Thanks Dawn!

This was super easy to make and really delicious. I do not like cilantro so I eliminated it, but otherwise stuck with the recipe exactly.

Delish! Great salsa with chips for a party! I added a scoopful to my eggs the next morning with a little cheese - so yummy! The lime juice really saves the avocado from turning brown!

Yummy. Even the kids loved it. Could be a dip or side salad.

This salsa is so fresh-tasting and delicious!! It always gets compliments when I bring it to gatherings. I follow the recipe as written except I leave out the onions because of personal preference.

Perfect! This also makes a wonderful, healthy lunch or snack. It's something my husband and I would keep in the fridge at all times, and it's wonderfully healthy. Thanks so much Dawn, this is a winner!

I absolutely loved this salsa and I don't even like black beans or avocados! Great with grilled fish. I forgot to add the corn but I definitely will add it next time!
