This is a modified version of a Black Bean and Couscous salad I found on this site. I omitted a few ingredients from the original and added tuna.

Yum! I had leftovers of a black bean and corn salad, and used this recipe to transform it into a new batch of delicious fresh summer quick meal. I love the dressing. With recipes as good and simple as this, there's no reason to keep eating unhealthy foods like greasy pizza!
