Fiesta Rice Salad

A friend of mine shared this recipe on facebook the other day. I thought it sounded wonderful and a perfect taste of summer! Thanks for sharing Jamie!

Fiesta Rice Salad-shared from My Recipes
3 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup lime juice(about 4 limes)
3 tbsp salsa
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups cold brown rice
1 pt grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
1 cup corn, thawed(if frozen)
2 cups black beans
1 red pepper, diced
1 avocado, diced(omitted)
1 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped

Whisk together oil, juice, cumin, salt, and salsa. Add in remaining ingredients except avocado and cilantro and mix to combine. Add avocado and cilantro just before serving.

**This came together very quickly(although it did help that I had the beans and rice already prepared). This was tasty and refreshing and pretty filling. I did add some extra salt and pepper. It would be perfect for a potluck.

Fat-5.9(this is without avocado added)
