Summer time is coming - slowly but surely - and to me that means allll the salads! If you've never put avocado in salad, then you're missing out! Salads with avocados are great for lunches, sides at dinner, or to bring to a pot luck!
This avocado salad is one of my favorites to make because it is:
The chili lime Mexican salad dressing is made with lime juice, avocado oil (or olive oil!), maple syrup, and some seasonings! It couldn't be simpler - but no one has to know! I like my spice subtle for this salad - I recommend tasting the vinaigrette after making it, but before pouring it on the salad, and adjusting the seasoning level to your preference.
Honestly, the ingredients can be whatever you want! The more fresh ingredients, the better! I use:
Step one: Place avocados, tomatoes, black beans and corn together in a large mixing bowl
Step two: Stir until the ingredients are completely mixed together
Step three: In a separate bowl, prepare the salad dressing by mixing the lime juice, oil, maple syrup, and seasonings, then mix until uniform
Step four: Pour the dressing over the salad, and stir to combine
This salad stores pretty good in a covered container for two to three days in the fridge - the lime juice in the dressing helps keep the avocado from turning too brown. I will say, the longer it sits, the better the flavors combine to make a very tasty salad, so I like to make it at least a few hours in advance - but you can also enjoy it immediately after preparing it!
