"Wow...really light and fabulous tasting! I had some grape tomatoes to use up and came to Zaar in search of options and your recipe fit the bill! I had all the ingredients on hand and decided to try it. YUM! I used low sodium canned black beans, grape tomatoes and doubled the garlic. I did find that I needed to add some salt and pepper at the end. In reading previous reviews, the mention of some fresh basil would also be outstanding in this. I devoured this along with the help of my 2 year old daughter. She couldn't shovel the black beans in her mouth fast enough! That, to me, is a HUGE success in a meal! Then couple that up with fact that this dish is not even 1 gram of fat and that confirms a true winner! This one will be made again and again by me! My pictures of this dish will be posted shortly. Thank you for this one!!!"
"I have made your recipe before & forgot to comment on it... it's WONDERFUL!!! This time, I did a variation, using what I had on hand. Therefore it was: 1 can black beans, 1 can diced italian seasoned tomatoes, no onion, a handful fresh basil, pepper, garlic, balsamic, and then some apple cider vinegar instead of the red wine. It actually turned out really well! Oh, and for lunch I tossed a touch of feta on top. Fantastic recipe... and I'd also like to try it on a tortilla like the other person posted below. YUM! Thank you!! :-D"
"I was surprised how good this was! I told DH it was "desperation salad" as I needed a side dish for burgers but had no lettuce or fresh herbs of any kind. I made this with a dressing similar to Recipe #56625, that I already had made up in the fridge. I also used regular tomatoes, as that was all I had. I needed to add salt and pepper as I used home-cooked beans instead of canned. But gosh it was tasty and even my toddler loved it. It also made fantastic bruschetta! I wouldn't bother making this unless tomatoes are in season ... it was the lovely ripe summer tomatoes that made this truly yummy."
"delicious recipe! especially good for these hot summer days.. i followed recipe except the onion; i used what i had; a vidalia. this was delicious at room temperature and after sitting in the fridge. very very simple and fast to make; healthy and satisfying. thanks for the easy delicious and healthy recipe"
"I just made this for lunch. It is delicious. The only thing I added was a little bit of salt. Next time I think I will put it in a tortilla. Thanks for sharing an easy, healthy, great tasting salad."
