Black Bean Salad Recipe
1 can black beans 15-16 oz, drained and rinsed
4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 avocado, deseeded and diced into cubes
In a medium sized bowl, add your rinsed black beans, extra virgin olive oil, red pepper flakes, and garlic powder. Mix ingredients thoroughly. Cover with plastic wrap, and place in the fridge for 30 minutes so that the flavors can marry.
After half an hour, take your bowl out of the fridge, add the diced avocados, and gently mix. Serve immediately or put back into the fridge until you are ready to serve. This will serve approximately six people, but you may want to make double if you think everyone will be having hearty portions.
Other ingredients also do really well in this recipe! Mix in some corn or chickpeas – anything that strikes your fancy!
