Tomato, Avocado, Bean Salad – Musings of a Manthe

I recently received quite a few tomatoes from my coop delivery and was on WordPress looking for some recipes, when I came across this little gem. It looks wonderful! Simple, tasty and VERY healthy! I can’t wait to try it!

Fit and Frugal Living

This salad is perfect for a Memorial Day cookout or to take to any kind of summer gathering. And it’s easy as 1-2-3!


2 pints of cherry tomatoes, halved or quartered
2 avocados, peeled, pitted and cut into chunks
1  14-oz. can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp cayenne
2 tsp lime juice (to taste)


  1. Put tomatoes, beans and avocados in a mixing bowl and stir gently.
  2. In a smaller bowl, mix onion powder, garlic powder, cumin and cayenne together. Add to tomato mixture and stir gently.
  3. Sprinkle lime juice and mix in gently.


  • Firmer avocados work better for this recipe.
  • All seasonings are to taste. I rarely measure, just pour some seasonings in and try it.

Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
