Juice from one large lime
3 large sprigs of cilantro, finely chopped
Salt to taste
Seasonings to taste: ground cumin and chili powder
Add the corn and black beans to a medium-sized bowl. Add in the chopped peppers, onions and tomatoes. Stir well.
Add in the avocado. Squeeze the juice from one lime into the bowl, and then drizzle with the olive oil. Add in the cilantro and seasonings to taste. Stir well.
