Black Bean Salad with Avocado Dressing

This morning I worked out at the gym (yay! back to lifting weights and loving it so far! fingers crossed the motivation keeps up). While I was at the gym I got very hungry. This always happens.... ugh ;) so while I was working out and dreaming about lunch (because that's what I do when I work out) I "googled" healthy salads and the below recipe popped up first. This was fine by me because it looked aaaaamazing and I wanted to try a making a new salad dressing! This black bean salad with avocado dressing from Pop Sugar was amazing and we will definitely be making it again. John who likes greens but doesn't love them even loved this one! Yay thumbs up to pop sugar!
