Corn and Bean Fiesta Salad

READY IN: 2hrs
Recipe by Ma Field

Warning! This makes a TON of salad. Then again, it's addictive and easy to make so it's a great one for your Summer cookout repertoire! Feel free to substitute some of the beans for other types if you prefer - the original emailed recipe I got had black-eyed peas in it. Mostly what you want is a pretty firm bean so it doesn't get mushy when you mix it together. You can also bump up the jalapenos if you like the heat! We love this with scoop corn chips or baked tortilla chips for dipping.

Oh boy, did this go over well! I made the full batch (and it does make A LOT) and was happy I did, because it was gobbled up by some very hungry and appreciative eaters. I wasn't sure I like the Italian dressing with it when I first made it, but then after marinating, I thought it was fabulous. And how easy was that?! We all loved it. Gracias. Made for ZWT8 Mexico/Tex-Mex/SW
