Manic Monday Recipe~Avocado Salad

This is such a yummy dish that I use for a side at most of my BBQs.  It has lots of fresh veggies and great flavor.  I know that some of you are still getting snow, but I can't help it, down here in Houston I'm in 70-80 degree weather!  I love summer!
I'll post a picture the next time I make this.

Ingredients:
3-5 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Freshly Squeezed Lemon
1 Freshly Squeezed Lime
1 Can of Black Beans (drained and rinsed)
1 16 oz Frozen Bag of Corn (Cooked and Drained)
3-4 Avocados Diced 
2 Tablespoon Chopped Fresh Cilantro
1 Small Red Onion Diced
3-5 Vine Tomatoes Diced
Salt and Pepper to Taste (I like to use Kosher Salt)
1 Jalapeno Diced (optional)

Directions:
After all of the prep, just mix the ingredients together, and let chill in the fridge for at least an hour before serving.  

You can use this as a side dish, a salsa dip, or even on top of your grilled chicken.  Enjoy!
