Black Bean Salad with Avocado, Tomatoes, Red Onion, and Cilantro

Black Bean Salad with Avocado, Tomatoes, Red Onion, and Cilantro

I saw a pinto bean salad over at Kalyn’s Kitchen that looked really delicious so I decided to make it. Unfortunately, I was out of pinto beans but luckily I had black beans which worked out great. I loved the combination of the flavors and textures in this salad – it was a big hit with all of us. I made burritos using this salad and some leftover flank steak for my husband’s lunch the next day and he LOVED it. It’s a quick and easy side dish that will pair nicely with most Mexican main entrees.

Place the drained and rinsed black beans into a bowl; add the vinegar and mix until well combined. Set aside. Place the avocado, tomato, red onion, and cilantro together in a bowl.

Combine the lime juice, garlic, and oil into a small container, whisk until well combined. Pour avocado mixture in with the black beans then drizzled the top with the lime mixture. Mix until evenly coated and well combined. Season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

  1. Good to know that this salad is so versatile! Pretty sure I have it bookmarked as well and I think I like it even better with black beans!

  2. This looks so good! I love black beans and avocados. I wonder how this would be if I added some quinoa to it?

  3. I tried this salad last night. Wonderful!!! I used three avocados instead of two, and added a finely diced fresh jalapeno, seeds and all. And clean, too! Thank you! I will make this again.

  4. This is a wonderful salad! I added another avocado to the mix and it was perfect, had just enough left over for hubby’s lunch the next day! Guys at work kept eyeing it he said 😉 Definitely a keeper.
    Thanks for all the great recipes!
