Kidney beans, avocado and coconut salad

Ramona's Cuisine -


Feel free to leave the coconut out if you don’t like it and add a good dash of freshly minced garlic.
There are quite a few ingredients that could be added to this and replaced with whatever you guys love that you can combine to your total liking:
- cherry tomatoes - carrot - cucumber - parsley or any preferred fresh herb (I normally add a bit of parsley, but in this recipe I didn't only because of the coconut - I don't want to get the coconut flavour wasted)
The dressing/vinaigrette can also be kept pretty plain with a simple lemon drizzle. Key lime.... even better with that coconut ...
