Black Bean, Corn + Avocado Salad

Black Bean + Corn Salad

Corn and tomatoes are big summer crops here in New Jersey and I just love finding different ways of working them into my recipes, so I can take advantage of their insane, seasonal, deliciousness!

I love that this salad is so colorful and fun, it really captures the energy of the warm, action packed, summer days!

Fresh corn is ideal in this recipe, but if you absolutely had to, you could sub in some frozen corn.  But only if you’re in a pinch, deal?

I love serving this along side some grilled chicken, fish or steak.  Or scooping some on top of my Grass Fed Turmeric Burgers.
