The other night I was just wanting southwest food. I thought what would go into a cold salad and this is what I just came up with. No other sources or recipes were used. I hope I got it somewhat right! Creating is half the fun of cooking, the other half is the eating.


  • 1 avocado (diced)
  • 2 tsp lime juice
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked rice (cook according the package directions; I used Arborio rice as I like that better, but any rice can be used)
  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans; drained and washed
  • 1 can (15.25 oz) corn; drained
  • 2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 cloves garlic; minced
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 2 roma tomatoes; diced
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup southwestern salsa
  • 2 Tbsp green chiles (either from a can, or fresh chopped)


  • Dice up the avocado and add lime juice, mix to coat. Refrigerate. (it helps the avocado not to turn brown while preparing the rest of the salad)
  • Mix together all ingredients and chill until ready to eat.
