Black Bean Salad #2
1 ripe avocado
2 cups fresh cooked corn

1 small red onion, diced
chopped cilantro to taste
juice of 2 limes
1/2 cup olive oil

Place all ingredients in a bowl. Squeeze lime over ingredients and drizzle with olive oil. Stir gently.

i haven't tried this one but according to my dad it is even better than the first one.

Kale Chickpea Mash
