Avocado, Black Beans and Tortilla Salad







Avocado, Black Beans and Tortilla Salad is a powerhouse of goodness and so so delicious ! It's just a big dose of health in a bowl.



It is obvious that during beautiful warm and summery days you can catch up on laziness, as summer is the perfect time to wind down. Mostly summer activities are generally relaxing. When we get outside and soak in the sun and get fresh air, I try to keep things simple and easy for lunch.



Few days back I prepared Avocado, Black Beans and Tortilla salad, this recipe blends the sweet spiciness of mild red chilli with the mellow flavour of avocado for a delicious combination and offers a tasty and healthy options to suit all palates. Black beans provide protein and toasted crispy tortilla strips lends crunch.  This delicious combination is a great new addition to our summer salad menu. It is healthy, filling, tasty and fresh !!!




The easiest and most satisfying salad you'll make this summer, I don't blame you if you eat this salad everyday - it's that good :)
