Avocado Black Bean Salad

Robust Recipe:  Avocado Black Bean Saladimage

This fresh wholesome salad will fill you up over lunch or for a mid-day snack. It’s got plenty of health benefits from the avocado, beans, and vegetables, including fiber, protein, monounsaturated fat, phytochemicals, anitoxidants, and plenty of vitamins and minerals. This nutrient dense salad is seasoned with lemon and lime to preserve flavor and freshness (not to mention lemon and lime do not add any additional fat).  You can also add some cayenne pepper for some additional heat.

The recipe is easy, quick and keeps for about a week!
