Another excellent recipe found in Taste of Home!! This is always a hit at any function. It is light and very fresh tasting. I rinse my black beans before adding them to the recipe. I also add a little extra lime juice and soaking time to the avocado to make sure they don't brown. I have made this recipe the night before and the avocados where still nice looking almost 20 hours later.

This dip is wonderful, a party favorite. I just made it for the second time by request. It's so light and fresh.

I made this dip for a function at work. I received RAVE reviews and nearly everyone asked for the recipe.I mixed it up the night before (except for the lime and avocado), so that the flavors could "marry". I added the avocado/lime the next day to keep it looking as fresh as possible.I used a roasted garlic rice vinegar instead of the red wine vinegar and omitted the cilantro, since I'm not a big fan of it.I rinsed my beans well, but after tasting, seasoning, and stirring several times the ingredients started to get more of a starchy coating on them. To keep it looking fresh you may want to add the beans and avocado last.
