Guacamole Salad


This has to be, hands down, my favorite dish to eat. The colors are so vibrant, the flavors are bright and it takes no time to throw together.

The Ingredients:

Grape Tomatoes


Yellow Bell Pepper


Can of Black Beans


Red Onion


Jalepeno


Limes


Garlic
(If I were cool, I would have taken a picture of the garlic and posted it but I'm not)

Olive Oil


Cayenne Pepper


Salt - Repeat after me...KOSHER Salt


Fresh Ground Pepper


Avocados



Directions (so easy a caveman can do it!):
In a medium-sized bowl (white looks best with this dish!), add the following:

Tomatoes,


Yellow Bell Pepper


Black Beans


Red Onion


Jalapeno


Lime Zest


Lime Juice


Olive Ol (at first "Ol" was a type-o but then I figured, what the hell, if you're from the South, chances are you so "Ol" anyway and considering I'm from the South...)


Salt


Pepper


Garlic


Cayenne Pepper


Avocados


Okay, now gently stir it to combine and you are ready to eat the best darn thing you've ever had before!



Recipe for Ina Garten's Guacamole Salad
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
1 yellow bell pepper, diced in 1/2 inch pieces
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup red onion, small-diced
1 jalapeno, ribs and seeds removed and then minced
Zest of 1 lime, about 1/2 teaspoon
Juice of 2 limes, about 1/4 cup
1/4 cup olive oil
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 avocados, skin and pits removed, chopped

Combine all above ingredients in a medium-sized bowl.

Serves about 6 as a side dish or about 10 as a dip with chips!
