It sounds like I'm not the only one who usually makes this with bell pepper instead of celery. It's yummy and very filling for being so low-fat. One thing I add to perk up the flavor even more is a tablespoon (or more) of red wine vinegar--it does something wonderful to the black beans, and makes the leftovers really good.

I love this salad! The only thing I do different is use a little chopped green pepper instead of the celery. This is such a refreshing sald. I make it every time we have Mexican food as a side dish. Thanks for the recipe.

At first this was a bit bland, but I added a splash of balsamic and red wine vinegar. I also used frozen corn, (Thawed out not cooked). Though I prefer red onion, I did not have any left in the fridge :( so I used 1/2 a white onion. Topped with a dollop of hot salsa....it was delicious! A must to try! Thank you Mimi for posting this....Marmie

It's actually one of the best bean salad recipes I've made so far. I've kept the celery and added a whole green pepper. I've also replaced the salsa with the tomatoes. Very, very good.

This is great, but I add fresh tomatoes instead of salsa, and leave out the celery. I also add a dash of balsamic vinegar - love this!! I use white corn, and it is fabulous, I use a whole bunch of cilantro b/c I love the flavor it gives!

This was so good! I made it with the celery, and it was the best, so crisp. I ate my fill on Sunday and then on Monday and Tuesday ate it in a warmed tortilla with alittle cheese. I can't get over how good this was!

So so yummy! We had it with pork chops tonight and it was wonderful. I made it with chopped red pepper in place of the celery, and didn't use any lime juice or cilantro because I didn't have any on hand. It sat in the fridge a few days, and man, was it perfect. With the substitutions and omissions I stated, and divided into 6 servings, each serving is 3 ww points. And they are big servings. Thanks for the wonderful recipe!
