    Miss Annie's Note:

    An excellent cool salad. It is make ahead and easy to make. The colors are very attractive, and the dressing is tart and tangy. You may also use the dressing on pasta or beans. Add grilled chicken strips for a complete meal, or Garbanzo beans, or try adding torn Romain lettuce just before serving.

      Every single time I make this (today will be the 5th or 6th time), I get rave reviews. I love all of the ingredients and the dressing is perfectly tangy without being overpowering. Perfect for picnics, summertime grillouts, and is versatile as a side dish or an appetizer. I'd imagine that for those who like a kick to their food, some jalapenos or a bit of cayenne would make a great addition too! Great recipe!

      So delish! I've made it many times, omitting only the cheese and adding probably more cilantro to taste. Lovely, lovely summer recipe. Thank you!

      I substituted chickpeas for the black beans (didn't have any) and was very generous with the cilantro and this was delicious. The dressing is so good- I might make some to keep in the fridge for other salads.
