Cowboy Bean Salad with Lime Dressing

Share

As the weather gets warmer, I enjoy making big salads that will keep in the refrigerator for a couple of days. They’re great for a quick lunch or side dish. Serve this dish with chips and you have a great appetizer.

Because the avocado is bathed in dressing, it won’t turn brown! If you don’t eat all of the salad in one sitting, a nice squeeze of lime juice will freshen it up for your next meal.
