This is a variation of a recipe I've been making for years. I've added the black beans to make it a nice vegetarian dish.

We enjoyed this. I used parsley instead of cilantro but I didn't think it added much to the dish. I will be sure to try cilantro next time. I also left out the tomatoes which in hindsight took some of the flavor away from the salad, so I will add some next time. I decreased the oil to 1/4 cup, doubled the lime juice, and added 1 tsp. of cumin. There were no leftovers! I will make again--thanks for posting.
