Creamy avocado, tart lime and herby cilantro. What could be better? This salad, that’s what! We love this combo of tomatoes, bell pepper and black beans – one of our favorite pantry staples! We added in our Cilantro Lime Pepper, and the result is one amazing salad. Eat it as a main dish. Tuck it in as a side. Load it into tortillas at lunchtime. It’s all so good!
