Black Bean Salad (*GF *Vegan)

The only introduction this needs is:  Yum!  Everyone liked this recipe!
Black Bean Salad
*from Whole Foods
1 ripe avocado, mashed
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
2 T fresh lime juice
2 (15 oz) cans black beans, rinsed & drained
4 cups greens (I used spinach and shredded cabbage and loved the mixture but use what you prefer or have on hand)
1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
1 cup corn kernels, fresh or thawed if frozen (I didn't add corn to mine and didn't miss it)
1 small red bell pepper, seeded & chopped
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds, toasted or raw depending on your preference

In a large bowl whisk together avocado, cilantro and lime juice until blended.  Add beans, greens, tomatoes, corn, pepper, pumpkin seeds and toss until evenly coated.

I added a dollop of Salsa Verde to mine to add a little extra snap and loved it!  But if you prefer, this salad is great flying solo :)
