I can't understand how something so simple and yet so delicious has passed me by so long. Not anymore! This is going to become a staple in our weekly meals. I just made this last night and there wasn't any left to take to work today, sigh... Black beans aren't readily available where I live, so I used 1 cup of cooked red beans and 1 cup of cooked chickpeas. It's really the cilantro that is the star of this dish! I used a garlic flavored oil, and tossed in just a hint of crushed red pepper flakes. Thanks again, Dancer, you've always come through for me!

Terrific tasting recipe. I used canned dark red kidney beans (my favorite). I also added some cumin and chili powder to the dressing. A freshly chopped jalapeno really gave it some zing!
