This recipe is great for two reasons. First, it's quick and easy to make. Second, it has a nice blend of a few ingredients which gives it a refreshing taste. I used 3-bean mix instead of black bean mix, and red wine vinegar instead of balsamic vinegar. It's a light salad which I'll be making often. Thanks Inez.

Inez this was a hit. I even took it to work for my boss and his wife to try. It was so easy to make and so good to eat. It is the perfect winter salad. Thanks.

This is very good, as is, but I too added chopped green, red & yellow pepper for color and a little celery. I have some left over and am going to add some cooked pasta for another meal.

Great basic recipe. I made it as is the first time, then for the second serving, I added cumin and cilantro, plus used lime juice instead of lemon, and cut back a bit on the vinegar because I prefer lime. I also added chopped green and red peppers. It was even better the next day. Easy and colorful recipe. Ole!

I love recipes where you can throw everything into a bowl and stir. I halved everything except the corn and found it a good proportion of beans/corn that way. Thanks for sharing this.

A truly GREAT salad, we love it. I'm very grateful to find a vegtable salad my Grandson loves, as at his age vegies aren't very popular! Thank you VERY much MizzNezz

Very fast to pull together for a last minute dish to take to a potluck meal. I had to use a sweet onion rather than a red onion, but followed the recipe otherwise. The flavors blended very well. I could also see adding some chick peas or cannelloni beans or pasta to it as well.

Loved it. Didn't have cilantro, but chopped up romaine lettuce. I'm sure it would be even better with the cilantro. Thanks!
