Colorful Black Bean and Crab Salad

"This is a very colourful side dish that I serve with jerk chicken or barbecued steaks. I quite often will take this to a pot luck along with several copies of the recipe, as it is always requested. For more of a bite, add a finely chopped jalapeno directly to the salad in addition to the sliced jalapenos on top."

    Very light, fresh and tasty. The colors in the salad are beautiful. I skipped the jalapeno peppers and we still loved it. The flavor keeps getting better the longer it chills. I'll definitely make this again. Thanx!

    Great Salad - served it to guests this weekend at a BBQ. We all felt it needed just a bit more "tang" so I'll try it next time with a little extra vinegar, carefully so as not to overpower it becuase the salad has a great mix of flavors to begin with. It was a recommended salad - definitely worth trying!

    Excellent salad, JCMM. I served this along with grilled steak and grilled potatoes. The dressing was very impressive and had incredible flavor. Made a very colorful and zesty side dish. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
