Black Bean, Avocado, Sweet Corn Salad is really refreshing and easy to make. A great accompaniment to Mediterranean dishes and fabulous for a barbecue with grilled meats. Very easy to make and enjoyed by all.
We discovered this dish in the Azores whilst enjoying a Transatlantic Cruise in a little restaurant tucked away on the back-streets of Ponta Delgada, the capital.
We were travelling with our in-laws and decided to take a taxi to visit the main attractions on the Island and also avoid the cruise crowds.
By lunchtime, we were a bit peckish and decided we all fancied something light. We stumbled upon Boca de Cena just as they were serving late lunch and the place was packed with locals which is always a good sign. We spotted this dish on the menu served with bread hand made on the premises. A really nice change from the fine dining we were enjoying onboard the ship.

Hot Summers luncheon – well it has to be Sacchetto Prosecco. This is pure, unadulterated classic no-nonsense Prosecco. There’s a slice of pear, chunk of apple and spot of peach all working together in perfect fruity harmony, combined with small delicate bubbles and a wonderfully long, creamy finish.
