Avocado Salad Recipe

Avocado Salad Vegan RecipeSIMPLE VEGAN AVOCADO SALAD

(serves 4-6 people)

  • 2-4 ripe avocados
  • 2 cans whole black beans
  • 2 cans whole corn
  • 4 roma tomatoes
  • 1 red onion (or white)
  • sea salt (or kosher; preferably not any refined or iodized salt)
  • lemon
  • serve with tostadas

Finely chop your tomatoes, onion and avocado. Mix into a bowl with your black beans and corn. Sprinkle salt and lemon to taste and ay esta! Serve on your favorite tostadas.

This recipe is a hit with the Ovas. Not only is it delectable, but the health benefits are amazing! For example, avocados help with nutrient absorption and have anti-inflammatory benefits (i.e. it’s good for that arthritis!). Black beans are high in fiber, folate, protein, and antioxidants and help support a healthy digestive tract. Avocados and black beans are both great for blood sugar regulation (’cause nobody wants diabetes!), improve cardiovascular health (gotta keep that corazon healthy) and have even been linked to reducing the likelihood of certain cancers! Nutritionists also note that a diet low in sodium (salt) can reduce the risk of high blood pressure which afflicts nearly one in three Americans and is a leading cause of cardiovascular disease!
