Terrific way to get your beans! Made this in the morning for dinner and absolutely loved it fresh and at room temperature. I thought it was far superior to the refrigerated, marinated version I served at dinnertime. Wonderful salad that deserves far more attention.

This is a wonderful side dish for a summertime meal. The cumin and cilantro are terrific. Be sure to use fresh cilantro for the best flavor. I made the recipe early in the day, refrigerated a few hours, then let the salad sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes before serving (olive oil tends to solidify when refrigerated).

I am in heaven! I had mandarin oranges and cilantro to use up from a food co-op basket this week, and am so glad I came across this recipe! I can only imagine how fabulous it will taste tomorrow. I just finished making it and can't stop eating it. Thank you so much for sharing the recipe. I look forward to making it many more times in the future!!
