You can and should make a double batch of the bean and avocado salad and enjoy it over mixed salad greens for a delicious lunch the next day. This bright and colorful salad is chockfull of black beans, corn, grape tomatoes, chopped up avocado, jalapeños, olive oil, and fresh lime juice and cilantro. You'll want this flavorful, citrusy, easy salad on hand in the fridge at all times; you could even use it as a dip or appetizer.
