Black Bean Slaw with Avocado

Whip up this cilantro lime slaw and you'll have the perfect light, refreshing topping for burgers, tacos and sandwiches!


6 (3/4 cup) servings


  • 1/2 bag (about 3 cups) angel hair finely shredded (coleslaw) cabbage
  • 1/2 cup pineapple tidbits, drained of juice
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, freshly minced
  • 1/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream
  • pinch jalapeño powder (or 1/2 teaspoon finely minced jarred jalapeño)
  • 1/8 teaspoon Southwest seasoning (no salt added)
  • 1 to 2 packets Born Sweet Zing™ Organic Stevia Sweetener - Zero Calories
  • 1 (15 ounce) can low-sodium black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 6 ounces avocado, diced
  • 1 (about 1 tablespoon) scallion, finely minced


Combine cabbage with pineapple in large mixing bowl.

In separate smaller bowl, whisk cilantro, mayonnaise, lime juice, sour cream, jalapeño powder, Southwest seasoning and Born Sweet Zing™ Organic Stevia Sweetener together. Stir dressing well into cabbage. Chill coleslaw until ready to serve.

When ready to serve, gently fold beans into slaw. Make sure beans are rinsed and drained well so they won’t “bleed” into the slaw. Combine avocado and scallion together. Serve portions of coleslaw topped with 2 tablespoons of diced avocado mixture.
