Recipe of the month: Colourful black bean salad

I made this recipe for a get-together and it was a hit for both adult and children. Why not give it try this Christmas?

Preparation time: 30 minutes


200g black beans (dried) or 2 cans of drained black beans

1 cup of frozen corn, boiled

1 avocado, peeled and diced

Half a spanish onion, diced finely

1/2 cup of slivered almond, toasted

Zest and juice of one lime

2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

One clove of garlic, crushed


1. Soak and boil black beans in a large pot with water until soft. (I used a pressure cooker).

2. Mix all ingredients in a large serving bowl. Season with pepper if desired.
