For the salsa you will need:

  • 3-4 medium/large tomatoes roughly chopped, excess water removed
  • 1 garlic clove chopped
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro leaves and stems
  • 2 scallions/green onions chopped
  • 2 tablespoons lime/lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon good vegetable oil
  • 1 red chilli pepper finely chopped
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Place all the salsa ingredients in a blender and process for a few seconds just enough to combine the ingredients.  Use the salsa straight away or pop in the fridge for half an hour until it becomes more solid.  Spoon the mixture onto the avocado halves, sprinkle with the black beans and serve.  Makes 4 portions.
