Black Bean Avocado Edamame Salad

Easy 8-ingredient Black Bean Avocado Salad with Edamame! Packed with a double punch of healthy plant-based protein and fresh veggies. Vegan, gluten-free, oil-free.

We LOVE this easy, 8-ingredient, nutrient-packed salad with a double protein punch (edamame + black beans!) All tossed with a super simple squeeze of lime for fresh, bright flavor. (I find limes vary in their juiciness, so I usually buy 2 to be safe in case more flavor is needed.) If you want to change it up a bit, there are some variation ideas below the ingredients - garlic, cumin, agave - or play around with other flavors you enjoy! I'd love to hear what you guys come up with. This is a fantastic make-ahead dish as the flavors beautifully intensify as it chills in the fridge!

Vegan, gluten-free, oil-free
Serves about 4 (or more as a side)

15 oz. can black beans
1 1/2 cups shelled edamame (8 oz.)
1 large, ripe avocado
1 1/2 cups cherry or roma tomatoes
1 cup sweet corn
1/4 cup red onion (or green onion for milder flavor)
1/3 cup cilantro
Juice from 1-2 limes, about 2-3 Tbsp.
Salt to taste
Optional variations: 1/4 tsp. cumin, 1 clove minced garlic, agave/honey to sweeten

Rinse and drain beans. Dice tomatoes.
Finely dice red onion. Roughly chop cilantro, stems removed.
In a medium bowl, add all ingredients except avocado. Toss to combine.
Adjust seasoning if necessary (more lime juice, salt, etc.)
When ready to serve, dice avocado. Add to bowl and gently toss.

Serving suggestion: before adding the avocado, refrigerate for an hour (or more) before serving to let flavors combine and intensify. Then add avocado when ready to serve.
