  • the juice of one lime

Instructions
  1. Cook the brown rice according to package details. Try to use the uncooked version, not the pre-cooked kinds. Normally, brown rice needs to cook for 25 minutes.
  2. Wash and dry the salad, and place it into a salad bowl. Wash the cherry tomatoes and cut them in half. Cut the avocado, remove the stone and scoop out the flesh and then cube it. Drain the beans and the corn and wash thoroughly under running water.
  3. Mix all ingredients in the salad bowl.
  4. For the dressing, mash the avocado with a fork or place all ingredients into a blender or food processor. Sprinkle over the salad and enjoy.
