#642 - Avocado Bean Salsa - for a nutrarian

Ok, after my unhealthy post, I want to share one of my favorite foods. 
 It is a bean/avocado salsa, that I eat as a main meal. 
Inspired by my friend Shelia's yummy Avocado Salsa.

One day I didn't have all the ingredients for her yummy salsa, so I made up my own version.

Basically, it's cowboy caviar.  But I think it fits in perfect to the nutrarian lifestyle (I'm trying to adopt - more on this later).

Avocado/Bean Salsa
1 can unsalted beans (or better yet, make your own)
1 can or 1/2 bag frozen sweet (organic) corn
1 avocado diced
1 tomato diced
1/2 can olives chopped up
3 green onions chopped up (or 1/4 sweet onion chopped up)
juice of 1 lime

Mix all together.  I can just eat this by the spoonful, no chips.  And you can add more or less of what you like, but I do think that the lime is a key ingredient and also the green onions.


ps, my picture above doesn't have all the ingredients I like to use, but you get the idea.
