Yummy Lunches!

Sandwiches and Lean Cuisines get old after awhile so I am always on the lookout for new things to try. Thanks to Oh She Glows (via Pinterest) I have found one of new favorites for lunch (or dinner)!

Quick Avocado-Lime Black Bean Salad

•Two 15-ounce can black beans

•1 lime, juiced

•1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped

•2 small shallots, diced

•1/2 tbsp olive oil

•3/4 teaspoon ground cumin

•1/4-1/2 tsp Kosher Salt, to taste

•Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

•1 large avocado, chopped into 1/2 inch pieces

Directions: Drain the beans thoroughly and rinse. In a large bowl add the beans and toss with lime juice, cilantro leaves, diced shallot, olive oil, and ground cumin. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Peel and slice an avocado, and serve the beans at room temperature, with chopped avocado on top or mixed throughout the salad. Note that I did not have any cilantro on hand, but it still tasted delicious! Makes 3-4 servings.

Do you have any recipes you think I should try?
