What's for Dinner?

It is crazy hot here.  I don't remember a Maine spring like this before.  It was 97 degrees yesterday and the day before.  It's cooling down slightly right now with a lovely breeze, but we are all still feeling a bit wilted from the heat.

In the spirit of easy, summery meals, here is a nice one because the only cooking is the quesadillas.

The salad is kind of the main course in this meal and the quesadillas go on the side.  Sour cream and salsa are for dipping or dolloping.

Garbanzo Avocado Salad with Lime:
2 cans of garbanzo beans, rinsed
1 can of black beans, rinsed
the juice of 1 lime
about 6 scallions, chopped
2 avocados chopped
1 large handful of chopped cilantro
1 tblsp olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Throw it all in a bowl and mix.

I would also add if I had them:  corn or red or yellow pepper.

My kids love quesadillas, but instead of bean salad, they ate strawberries, carrot sticks, and apple sauce on the side.
