Colorful Black Bean Salad

"Cherry tomatoes and yellow pepper add splashes of color this black bean salad. 'I like to let it stand for at least 15 minutes before serving to allow the flavors to blend,' suggests Laurie Mace of Los Osos, California."

I stuck to the recipe, except that I probably only used half a pint of cherry tomatoes as I don't like them that much! It was great, and received good reviews from my friends as well. Thanks!

LOVED this recipe! Even my picky teens enjoyed it! My modifications were adding a can of corn, drained & rinsed and I changed the pepper to an orange bell and I diced it.

This is a nice salad. I doubled it but did 1 can of corn rather than 4 of black beans. Helped add color and flavor, I felt. We used chips to scoop this up.

I also added tomatillos and corn and the salad was a hit.

This salad was quick and easy. I increased the cilantro a bit but followed the recipe. I served this salad on a bed of mixed greens with a little grated cheddar on top. Healthy and yummy!
