15 oz. can black beans

1 1/2 cups shelled edamame (8 oz.)

1 large, ripe avocado

1 1/2 cups cherry or roma tomatoes

1 cup sweet corn

1/4 cup red onion (or green onion)

1/3 cup cilantro

Juice from 1-2 limes, about 2-3 Tbsp.

Salt to taste

Optional variations: 1/4 tsp. cumin, 1 clove minced garlic, agave/honey to sweeten

Rinse and drain beans. Dice tomatoes.

Finely dice red onion. Roughly chop cilantro, stems removed.

In a medium bowl, add all ingredients except avocado. Toss to combine.

Adjust seasoning if necessary (more lime juice, salt, etc.)
