The holiday season usually brings office potlucks and friends & family gatherings. While this is great for mingling and spending time with the people in your life, potlucks usually entail more unhealthy foods and we usually tend to eat more than we normally would.

The grazing and munching can be quite dangerous for your waistline especially when most potlucks are high in carbohydrates – puff pies, tarts, breads, crackers; Trans Fat – cheeses, dips, and high sugar – desserts. SO bring s contribution that is filled with nutrition such as fiber and protein, and will also add colour and life to any potluck table. It’s also extremely easy to make!

Ingredients:

  • 5-6 avocados
  • 2 cans black beans
  • 1 can corn
  • About 20 batch cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 red onion
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup olive oil (good quality, I use O-LIVE)
  • Just under 1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar

Slice avocados into cubes day before, squeeze the whole lemon over the avocado and let it marinate overnight.

Rinse and dry all excess water from the black beans and the corn

Chop tomatoes (in half) and finely dice red onion. Let these sit on a paper towel to remove extra water to prevent salad from becoming watery.

Day of potluck, mix all ingredients together including olive oil and balsamic.

Easy & Nutritious!
