Avocado Black Bean Salad

The combination of flavors and textures make this Avocado Black Bean Salad incredible!

This is one of the first recipes I made during my time as a cooking instructor. So, as you can imagine I have a lot of love for this recipe. It brings back one of my favorite memories, and reminds me that even when we are nervous as hell, we can still accomplish great things.

The class was packed and and thankfully full of fun amazing people ready to laugh. They stood by me as I battled nerves, struggled with oven issues, and even tossed an avocado through the air as I was attempting to demonstrate how easy the avocado slicer worked! Thankfully my kitchen assistant for the night caught the avocado as it was flying through the air, and saved if for this incredible salad! 

The combination of flavors and textures in this salad is what makes it incredible, not to mention the health properties. This salad works great as a side, or double the serving and have it as a meal.
