Bean, Avocado, and Tomato Salad

Published by on

Some days when I sit down to share a new recipe with you, I draw a complete blank regarding what to write. I lack any funny anecdotes or fond distant memories to share; instead I stare blankly at my blinking cursor.


Today is one of those days.


So rather than ramble about nothing, I’ll cut straight to the point. This salad is awesome. Simple ingredients, little time investment, big flavor results. Enjoy it for lunch, as a dip for tortilla chips, or even wrapped up in a soft taco shell.
