    puppitypup's Note:

    This is the perfect salad to take to a family reunion or potluck. It's colorful, keeps well and is full of flavor without being too spicy or vinegary. I think the Sun Vista brand of beans has the best flavor for this recipe. Passive cooking time is chill time.

      Love,love this recipe! Just bought a garlic/ lemon flavored olive oil & cilantro& garlic and jalapeño flavored balsamic vinaigrette at a festival this weekend & used them in place of the wine vinegar and olive oil..<br/> DELICIOUS and it hasn't even marinated or had the avocado or chili powder added yet!!!

      This is awesome! so flavorful and healthy. I added a minced up a jalapeno and 1/4 lb. small multi-colored pasta, to make it go even further. Everyone loved it, and it's so pretty. Adding diced jicama also adds crunch.

      Great salad. DH doesn't care for garbanzo so I used navy beans. The flavor in the dressing is really great. Served with Chicken in Creamy Chipotle Sauce.
