Black Bean & Avacado Salsa

Black Bean & Acacado Salsa

My friend Diane showed me how to do these fun won-ton cups and the salad is from several different friends who have let me try theirs.  I like the salad just plain on top of shredded lettuce as a salad.  My husband likes it wrapped in tortillas as a wrap or as a topping for burritos.  These appetizer cups though are what my kids prefer.  Anyway you do it, its a easy, relatively healthy salad.

2 avacados cup up and tossed with 1 Tbsp lemon juice
1 package Italian salad dressing mix made according to directions with oil and water or use 2 cups of Italian salad dressing
1 bunch of green onions chopped up
1 15 oz can corn, drained
1 15 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed

Toss all the ingredients together and let sit for at least one hour

As an appetizer:

A package of wonton wrappers
Sour cream

Heat your oven to 350 degrees.  Put a won ton wrapper into the cups of a mini-muffin pan to form little cups.  Cook for 7 minutes or until lightly golden.  Let cool.  Fill with salad and top with a small scoop of sour cream.
