    Charmie777's Note:

    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.

      I have made a different version of this before, but not for a few years and it seems that author changed the recipe since! This is very close to the original one I had liked. I used a T or so dried cilantro which worked great (I don't love cilantro and this seemed more subtle). I also added about 1/4 C parmesan cheese...sounds odd, but I had tried it before to give just a little more flavor and liked it. Served with tequila lime chicken.

      We really liked this. It was a little bland, but I added a diced avocado and that was a good addition. Good leftovers. Great for cookouts and hot summer days.
