Guacamole Salad

Tonight we had quesadillas and this yummy salad. The recipe is from Barefoot Contessa at Home. I made a minor change to the dressing by reducing the amount of lime juice and olive oil. Also, I forgot to add the chopped bell pepper the original calls for, but you don't miss it with the jalapeño. This would be perfect with grilled chicken or fish on a summer night when you don't want to heat up the kitchen. Enjoy!

Guacamole Salad
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup minced red onion
1 jalapeño, seeded and minced
1 or 2 avocados, chopped
Zest from 1 lime
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice (2 limes)
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1 garlic clove, minced

1. Place tomatoes and next 5 ingredients in a bowl. Combine lime juice and next 4 ingredients. Pour lime juice mixture over tomato mixture.
