145.2...Pinto Bean Salad with Corn, Yellow Peppers, Tomatoes and Avocado

I realize that summer is coming to an end but there’s just enough time to make this Pinto Bean Salad with Corn, Yellow Peppers, Tomatoes and Avocado. We barbecued last night and I made this to go with the meal. It was Fabulous. Try it right away!

We went to brunch today at The Hideaway Cafe in Solana Beach.  I ordered the Jalapeño & Grilled Red Onion Omelet with egg whites, sliced tomatoes and wheat toast.
