1/4 cup store-bought vinaigrette
1/4 cup thin sliced scallions (about 3)
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro or parsley
1 teaspoon grated lime peel
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
1/2 cup diced red pepper
1 fully ripened avocado, halved, pitted, peeled and diced
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In a large bowl, whisk together salad dressing, scallions, cilantro, lime peel, and salt.

Add beans, corn and pepper; toss to coat. Add avocados; toss gently.

Appetizers

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Since avocados contain nearly 20 vitamins, minerals and mono and polyunsaturated good fats, and one-fifth of an avocado -- a typical serving -- has only 50 calories, using them in this lively salsa is a healthy eating idea.
