Fiesta Black Bean Salad

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

I made this up as something to go with my chicken mole recipe, since I wasn't really in the mood for something like Spanish rice or refried beans. I think it makes a great side dish for Mexican food! This also would make a great salsa or dip.

Incredibly delicious (and simple too)! I made this exactly as posted, but also added some halved grape tomatoes that I needed to use up. This is so versatile too. It's a great side dish but is equally good served with tortilla chips as a dip/salsa. It is even better the next day. I should know - I just ended up eating it straight out of the container with a spoon! I will definitely be making this again! Thanks for sharing your great idea.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine ingredients, mixing well.
  2. Cover and refrigerate for several hours before serving.
  3. Note: the best way to dice an avocado is to cut it in half up to the seed all the way around, wiggle it apart, take a knife and pry out the seed, then cut the flesh into a cross-hatch without cutting through the skin, then scooping out the fruit with a larger thin spoon, as close to the skin as you can get.
