This is a scrumptious recipe. This recipe was made for a group of children at my church, on Mission Adventure Dinner night. We make foods from around the world so our children can sample what other children around the world eat. Not all recipes go over well, but this one “rocked� - as one of our children described it. The children and works all loved it. It was great. I was skeptical at first with sweet potatoes and black beans mixed, but man - it works. The flavors were amazing together. This recipe is great just like it is printed. I have had to print out more copies of this recipe for other ladies in our church. Thank you cookiedog for this recipe.

This salad has a wonderful combination of flavors -- the sweet potatoes and black beans go together so well and are a really tasty combination. I found the salad mix was quite salty with the 1 tablespoon of salt and for our tastes the dressing was a little too tart. I'm going to remake it using less salt and vinegar; the "basic" ingredients tasted so good that I want to to try it again with these changes. ***I'm updating this review from 4 stars to 5. I remade it using less of some ingredients: 1/2 tsp. salt instead of 1 tbsp. in the cooking water; for the dressing -- 1/2 tsp. dijon mustard instead of 1 tsp., and 1 tbsp. red wine vinegar instead of 2 tbsp. It tasted so delicious, with a refreshing and "bright" flavor, and it only lasted about 5 minutes on the table. Yum -- it's a keeper!!
