A Healthy Fall Salad: The Black Bean, Avacado Corn, Red Pepper and Red Onion Mix

photo-9

Fall is my favorite time of the year. I can hardly wait to go apple picking, smell the clean crisp air, put up autumn/fall decorations, make healthy variations of roast chicken, roast vegetables and bake apple, blueberry or peach crisp. Oh … and I also like to shop for new boots, fitted black turtleneck sweaters and pencil skirts.

But for now … I ‘m most eager to share the recipe for my newest season treat … a healthy fall salad. When you crave a nourishing meal but have little time for cooking, this is your meal. It’s hearty and oh so delicious! Enjoy!
