I have made this recipe so many times I can't even count. It is so simple, delicious, refreshing, and SO healthy! I usually throw in ingredients that I have on hand, but the original recipe is my absolute favorite. Cilantro, red onions, cumin, corn, black beans.... mmm it is so tasty! Thank you for sharing!

This makes a fantastic side dish! I've also ate it alone for lunch and it's very filling!

I made this exactly as posted, but was a little confused on the amount of black beans, so I ended up using just one 16-oz. can. That seemed to be the right amount. I used tricolor couscous and ended up with a very colorful salad. I also added the tomato, jalapeno and feta. This made a nice lunch, and I'm sure I will be making this again. It would also be a good side dish at your next barbecue. Made for ZWT6.

We liked this salad and made it as directed. Next time I'll add some sauted onion and maybe a bit more vinegar and spices...I think it still could use more zip. Made for ZWT and a fellow Queen!

Very nice salad! I didn't add jalapeno because I'm hoping my LO will eat it, if not next time I will. I'll try with quinoa too, great go-to side!

I add Quinoa instead of couscous for the added protein and fiber. Yummy either way!

Great recipe, quick and easy! I omitted the oil and didn't have cilantro on hand, but it still tasted great. I did add the feta and used a few table spoons of salsa instead of tomatoes. Would definately make again.

Delicious! We loved this recipe. The red wine vinegar and lime juice added just the right amount of flavor. We forgot to put in the jalapeno, but did add feta and tomatoes.

This is a great salad. I added green bell peppers and cucumbers (love the crunch) and about a half bottle of robust italian salad dressing. It makes it 10 times tastier for those who think it may be bland.

It was a little bland for me. I added parmesan cheese, some salt and a little lime seasoning I had to add more flavor. I also did extra cilantro. It wasn't very exciting.
