Peppers, Black Beans, & Avocado


Since graduate school I have had this salad on my shortlist because it just seems to get better the longer it is in fridge. Its great for making a single bowl with leftovers or a huge batch that could last you a week if you are lucky. Throw in pretty much any herb or greens you may have around and sub your favorite tangy vinegar if you are out of limes. Did I mention cheap?

1″ sliver each red & yellow bell peppers
