This Black Bean, Corn, and Avocado Saladit is perfect for summer!

ThisBlack Bean, Corn, and Avocado SaladCombine three of my favorite ingredients: black beans, corn, and avocados. It is such a simple salad to make too!

During the summer, I love to pick fresh sweet corn from the farmers market. When the corn is at its peak, there is no need to cook it. The natural sweetness of corn is so good raw.

Black beans and corn are such a classic combination. The two are perfect paired together. Of course I had to add avocado to the salad because it's the best!

The salad dressing is full of flavor. I add earthy cumin, lime juice, olive oil and hot sauce. The spicy sauce adds a nice warmth to the salad. You can use a mild or extra spicy sauce.

I love serving the salad with tortilla chips!
