One of my favorites:
Lime Dressing:

* 1/2 cup diced sweet red pepper
* 1/2 cup diced red onion
* 1 jalapeno diced
* 1/2 teaspoon lime zest
* 1 cup grape tomatoes (optional)

Methods/steps

*
Combine all ingredients for dressing in a jar. Tighten the lid a shake until blended.

In a medium bowl add avocado, beans, red pepper, onion, jalapeno, tomato (if desired) and lime zest.

Give the dressing another shake and add to the salad. Top with cilantro.
*
Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Very Yummy....

don't know what I did but it isn't very pretty.
http://www.bonairetalk.com/newsgroup/clipart/sad.gif I used avocados that were still firm but just gave a little to the touch. but still it came out kinda mushy.... I tried to be careful when blending together.. I would definitely make this again for family not sure I would make it for company cause it is a bit "blended" I guess the word is..... and although I know this can stand alone as a veggie dinner or lunch.. we had it with fried flounder and it was really very yummy../ thanks Elizabeth http://www.bonairetalk.com/newsgroup/clipart/happy.gif George just came in and said Boy this is really good http://www.bonairetalk.com/newsgroup/clipart/happy.gif SOOOOOOOOOOO

Glad you liked it. I understand about the appearance, sometimes I make it and it looks pretty good and sometimes it looks not so good. I always tastes great though.
