  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

To Make the Dressing

  • Make the dressing: Smash the garlic clove, sprinkle with a pinch of salt, and with the flat side of a large knife, mash and smear the mixture to a coarse paste.
  • Whisk the garlic paste, lime juice, salt and chili powder together in a bowl.
  • Gradually whisk in the olive oil, starting with a few drops and then adding the rest in a steady steam.

To Make the Salad

  • Cook the corn, bell pepper, and onions in olive oil over medium-high heat in a skillet until it starts to brown.
  • Toss in the black beans and cook until warm.
  • Add the dressing and toss to coat evenly.
  • Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat and gently fold in the tomatoes, avocado, and cilantro. Serve.
