Cook rice according to package directions. Spread evenly on a baking sheet to cool; fluff with a fork. Whisk garlic with lime juice, cumin, salt, pepper, honey and hot sauce. Whisking constantly, gradually pour in oil to combine. Stir a spoonful of the dressing with the avocado. Reserve remaining dressing.
Layer red pepper, avocado, black beans, rice, corn, tomato, green onion, Cheddar cheese, and cilantro into a straight-sided, glass bowl or trifle dish. Toss with dressing just before serving.
Tip: Rinse the beans well to remove excess sodium contributed by the canning liquid.
Tip: Layer the salad in individual glasses for a more elegant presentation.
