Black Bean and Rice Salad *Lauren Perry*

I wish I could claim this as my recipe or atleast a recipe that I found, but my mom sent it to me from another recipe blog (not sure which one). Its a wonderful little salad if you are going to a BBQ or having people over. Its very filling and full of flavor!

2 cups of white rice (pre-cook and chill)
1 can of black beans (drained)
1/2 cup chopped tomato
1 chopped avacado
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 cup olive oil
3 TBS lime juice
1 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 crushed garlic clove
salt and pepper

in a large bowl, mix tomato, avacado, red onions, beans, rice and cilantro. In a small bowl, wisk olive oil, sugar, cumin, garlic, and lime juice. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Combine all ingredients until consistent.
