Black Bean Tostadas with Curly Endive Salad
Serves 2.

3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon wine vinegar, or to taste
3 tablespoons olive oil
a 15- to 16-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup chopped drained sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil
1 avocado (preferably California)
1 scallion, chopped
vegetable oil for frying the tortillas
two 7-inch corn tortillas
3 cups inner leaves curly endive, torn into pieces
1/3 cup thinly sliced red cabbage

In a small bowl whisk together the cumin, the vinegar, and salt to
taste and whisk in the olive oil. In a bowl combine the beans, the
tomatoes, the avocado, peeled, pitted, and cubed, and the scallion,
stir in about two thirds of the dressing and salt and pepper to
taste, and toss the mixture well.

In a small skillet heat 1/2 inch of the vegetable oil over moderately
high heat until it is hot but not smoking and in it fry the tortillas,
1 at a time, for 1 minute, or until they are crisp and golden,
transferring them as they are fried to paper towels to drain. In
another bowl toss the curly endive and the cabbage with the remaining
dressing and salt and pepper to taste. Divide the tortillas between
2 plates, top them with the black bean mixture, and divide the
curly endive salad between the plates.
