We may be losing daylight but summer is not over yet! There is still time for barbecues and porch sitting. That’s why this month we’re serving up the best summer snack/appetizer in our repertoire: summer corn, avocado and black bean salad.
On top of tasting amazing, this recipe is packed full of potential health benefits. Black beans are rich in selenium, a mineral that aids in liver enzyme function and detoxifies some cancer-causing compounds.
Pro tip: Most canned vegetables and beans contain added salt and you could be adding more salt into your recipe than you’d like. To prevent this, look for “no salt added” ingredients. If you can’t find it, rinse the vegetables before adding them to your dish to get some of the added salt off. This is what we did for the black beans in the recipe below.
