Black Bean Pasta Salad

Black Bean Pasta Salad

-whole wheat spiral pasta
-1 onion
-4-5 cloves of garlic
-olive oil
-balsalmic vinegar (I used raspberry flavored)
-1 avacado
-1 can black beans
-half package of frozen corn (I had used half an ear I had left and sliced it off but I could have used a whole one)

1- Boil pasta

2- Cut up onion and garlic and put in a bowl

3- Add equal amounts of olive oil and vinegar to said bowl (enough to make as a dressing obviously)

4- drain black beans and set aside

5-defrost corn/slice off cob/what have you

6-slice avacado into chunks

7- Find whatever way you prefer to make pasta cold (I just leave in fridge for awhile once it's ready and I finish up the dressing)

8-Toss dressing, beans, corn, avacado, and pasta together

9- Let sit in fridge for 1-2 hours so everything absorbs the flavor

10- add salt and pepper to taste

and eat.

I would have loved to added some cilantro to this but unfortunately didn't have any on hand. It was still delicious though. I wouldn't suggest if you're not a fan of garlic. I ate this a few hours ago and drank an iced coffee and I still stink :p I had also added feta cheese on top since I am not full vegan convert but I'm sure vegan feta would work fine as well.

I know it's pretty basic but I didn't see anything similar in here and decided to share since it seems like a good item to bring for a BBQ/Picnic and something picky omnivores would dig.
