Fantastic Mexican Corn and Bean Salad (Vegetarian)

"This recipe makes a large amount but don't worry when you taste this you won't be able to keep your spoon out of the bowl it is *that* delicious! Plan ahead this salad *must* chill for 24 hours before serving. Adjust the Tabasco and all seasonings to taste. This is perfect for a barbecue get together or to take to a potluck!"

  1. Perfect salad for a Mexican buffet!
  2. A really delicious salad - thank you! This gets rave reviews from everyone.
  3. I really love dishes like this! I did tweak a few things- I skipped the garbanzo beans and used orcas instead, and subbed red pepper for the green. This was so easy to make, and the slightly spicy dressing was just perfect. I'll definitely make again!
  4. Wow! This is so good. I made as directed except left out the green pepper since we don't care for it. I also cut the dressing amount in half just to make it healthier and it was plenty. My whole family loved it and I'm sure I will make again. Thanks for posting!
  5. VERY tasty! The seasonings in the dressing definitely give it an addicting, "have to have one more spoonful" taste!! Will make again & again!


  1. I thought this was a really good and different salad. Only 4 stars because I did not make it strictly according to the directions. No black beans and I substituted pimentos for the green pepper. I also added almost 2x amount of lime juice. But overall a great saald to have with Mexican food instead of rice and beans.
