Black Bean Tostados

This dish is quite simply one of my favorites. I adore the combination of the beans, fresh avocado, sun-dried tomatoes and cumin. The endive and the lightly-salted tortillas provide a satisfying crunch. And its effortless to prepare. Enough said.

Black Bean Tostados
adapted from Gourmet . serves 4

4 nine-inch tortillas
3/4 t cumin
2 T white wine vinegar
3 T olive oil (or oil from sun-dried tomatoes)
1 19-oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 c sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
1 avocado, peeled, pitted and cubed
2 scallions, chopped
1 c cabbage, shredded (or rainbow slaw)
2 c endive

Spray both sides of tortillas with olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt. Broil 3-4 minutes, flip and broil reverse side until lightly browned. In a small bowl, whisk cumin, vinegar, olive oil and salt. In a large bowl, combine beans, sun-dried tomatoes, scallions, avocado and cabbage. Add dressing and lightly toss. Season to taste with salt and pepper. To assemble, place endive on tortillas and top with bean mixture.

I've made something similar many times before but never thought to include cabbage. Thanks for the idea!
