California Summer Salad

One of the coolest parts of my new environmental job?!…Lunch co-ops!!! Each co-op has four people- one for each day of the work week. Yes, Fridays off. What up. We each cook for each other one day a week and get to just enjoy other people’s cooking on the other three days! It makes my mornings more beautiful and relaxing. My Sunday nights are, however, somewhat of a scramble when I haven’t gone grocery shopping. But this week I was prepared! With the idea inspired by a chef, I ran with this three bean salad and totally rocked it. It was silly good, and my co-op buddies agreed whole-heartedly :)

Here’s what I did:

-A can each of organic black, red, and white beans

-One big, diced tomato

-A perfectly ripe, diced avocado

-Half of an onion, finely chopped

-An entire bunch of fresh cilantro, chopped

-The juice of one lime

-Salt, pepper, cumin, garlic powder, a dash of cayenne pepper

Mix all together and enjoy your gorgeous, healthy, Californian summer salad! (Add fresh corn too if you have it! That would be phenomenal!)

**French phrase for fun:

J’adore les salades pendant l’été.

I love salads in the summer.
