Bean Salsa/Salad

With summer right around the corner its hard not to think of "Cooking Easy"...and light...easy because life seems to be busy until late into the evening, light because its hot outside and no one wants to eat things that are warm and full of fat.  This Bean Salsa/Salad recipe is one of the easiest. Its super healthy but doesn't taste like you're eating healthy food...you know, that blah, boring yucky taste the seems to come to mind when you're eating something healthy?! This is anything BUT!!! Its packed full of nutritious ingredient, but delicious ingredient that just make your taste buds sing. My friend Maylene made me this for my birthday one year. I like it so much that I got the recipe from her...she got it from someone else...and so on and so on. Regardless of where it originated from, it's a keeper, thats for sure. I like to serve it with Tostito Brand Tortilla Chips "with a HINT of Lime", but you can serve it with whatever kind of chips that you like or serve it as a salad and just eat it plain. It's really delicious either way. So Enjoy~

Bean Salsa/Salad
2 cans black beans, drained
1 can corn, drained
2 cans spicy, diced tomatoes, drained
( I just diced up some fresh one, because I had some that needed used)
2 avocado's, diced
1 package dry Italian dressing mixed with 1/2 c. vinegar

Mix well and serve. 
*add a little bit of lime juice to give it a little "zip" just before serving. 

Happy Cooking~
