Colorful Black Bean and Crab Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Just Call Me Martha

This is a very colourful side dish that I serve with jerk chicken or barbecued steaks. I quite often will take this to a pot luck along with several copies of the recipe, as it is always requested. For more of a bite, add a finely chopped jalapeno directly to the salad in addition to the sliced jalapenos on top.

Excellent salad, JCMM. I served this along with grilled steak and grilled potatoes. The dressing was very impressive and had incredible flavor. Made a very colorful and zesty side dish. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
