Grilled Corn, Black bean, & Avocado Salad

This little (easy as pie) salad is basically guac with some fun add-ins (and sans tomatoes – though you could definitely throw some in!). I ate this as a meal, but it could be a side for Taco Tuesday or even a chunky dip served with tortilla chips.

I didn’t pull out the grill just for grilling corn, either…I just threw some corn on the grill a couple days before when I grilled some chicken and veggies for dinner. After grilling, I wrapped it up and stuck it in the fridge.

The no-stove summer continues! Enjoy!
