So, noted now, Mary T., sometimes I buy tomatos from the Netherlands, they raise them in planthouses, and if you don´t buy them too often I think that´s okay, rather than buying some from Africa or so because I´m from Germany, so the Netherlands ain´t sooo far... .

Great idea, but since we don´t get those kinds of bean as canned beans here I´d use kidney beans, I can imagine they´d be just as tasty in this salad!!! Thank you, will just note the recipe because I buy and eat avocados more often... Not the expensive Hass avocados, I choose the cheaper ones, they´re just as tasty and healthy!!!
