  • 1/2 cup uncooked white rice
  • 1 avocado diced
  • 1 (14 fluid ounce) can black beans drained & rinsed
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can corn (or use fresh corn cut off the cob) drained
  • 1-2 tablespoons red onion chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro chopped
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice + zest of 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


  • Cook the rice according to package directions. Let it cool.
  • Add the dressing ingredients to a small bowl and whisk together.
  • Prep the remaining recipe ingredients and add them, along with the cooked rice, to a salad bowl. Toss with the dressing. Season generously with salt & pepper. Taste and adjust as needed (e.g. add a little extra lime juice if you think it needs it). Cover and chill for an hour or so, or enjoy it right away.


  • Serves up to 4 as a main course or 4-6 as a side dish (depending on what else you serve it with).
  • If you want to make this recipe ahead, I suggest adding the avocado right before serving so it doesn't go bad. It's also a good idea to add the dressing at that time so the rice doesn't soak it all up.
