I have made this recipe on numerous occasions and every time I do, I have people surrounding me asking what it is. Its is always a big hit! I altered it a little bit and use fresh lime and cilantro instead of it being in the canned tomatoes. When you see it made, it looks like it was complicated but making it is so easy!

Quick, easy, healthy and yummy! I also made using fresh cilantro and lime juice, plus added a diced sweet onion.

I couldn't find the lime and cilantro tomatoes, so I used garlic and onion tomatoes instead. I omitted the garlic powder and added some lime juice. Since I'm not a big fan of cilantro I didn't bother adding any. However, that might have been a mistake as I found the salad to be a little bland. I also used white kidney beans instead of red as that is what I had. I took the salad to a potluck dinner as a side dish, but my brother told me he wished he could eat it with some tortilla chips and beer. Very easy to make and I love how colorful it is.

i use red wine vinegar, an just regular diced tomatoes. i also add just a little bit of cumin, maybe 1 teaspoon. this is AMAZING i brought this on a 4 day camping trip (made it the night before we left) and it was perfect, kept well, an easy to eat a bowl full, or eat with tortilla chips.i have also brought this to parties, and EVERYONE raves over this! i definitely recommend this !
