A nice salad to use when you're grilling outside. I think it's a pretty addition to the table and has a little more nutritional value than the typical corn or potato chips! :)

I love the potential of this salad, it is so healthy, I didn't add black beans but added some chopped tomato, capsicum and grated carrot. I liked it but I think I would prefer it with a different dressing. I think a curry mayo dressing would be fab with this.

Now this is a very, very different salad for my table anyway! Followed the ingredients right on down & produced a VERY TASTY side dish! Another time I might just add a tablespoon of honey mustard to the dressing to boost it up a small notch, but that's just my taste! Thanks for sharing a great recipe!
