Happy St. Patrick’s Day! There are plenty of great foods which are naturally green, but avocados are one of my favorites. As a treat for my Mom who loves to have lunch made for her, I whipped up this avocado bean dip, and placed a big spoonful on a salad of lettuce, cucumbers, shredded carrots, diced tomatoes, and black beans. Unfortunately, the weather on my vacation wasn’t great, so most of my pictures are indoor shots. But it was still a delicious and relaxing lunch!

1 c. black beans
1 ripe avocado
Juice of one lemon
Garlic powder

Blend beans, avocado, and lemon juice in a food processor until almost smooth. Add garlic powder, salt, and pepper to taste.
