Truly original and truly delicious. This is one of the most colorful salads I have ever eaten. The glistening black beans looked great against the creamy white of the couscous, offset by the brilliant red of the pepper and the dark green of the cilantro. The yellow of the corn really stand out next to the beans. I only used one can of beans and this was a huge salad. It went quickly, it really complements the taste of grilled meat! Thanks Yooper, this is a winner!

This salad is great- wonderful mix of colour and flavour. I used only one can of beans and it was plenty. I also added 1 heaping tablespoon of Tex-Mex seasoning to give it lots of zing. Will definately make it again.

This was a delicious side dish for grilled chicken. Very tasty and colorful. Really a great summer salad to accompany any grilled meat. Thanks Yooper!

Loved this dish! I've actually been eating it as a meal. I used wheat couscous and only about 6 green onions.

Whoever invented this is a culinary genius! I used veg. broth in place of chicken to make 100% vegetarian and added extra extra lime & cilantro! Yummy!!

Yum! This is a refreshing salad - great for summer and buffets. I used Goya black beans and it was great.
