This is a nice black bean salad. I like that it's not cilantro based and really dig the chili powder. This would be a great way to repurpose leftover rice! I plan to use my leftovers (and thi...

Absolutely fantastic,and everybody loved it. For colour, I usually use 2 cans black beans and 1 can red kidney. With the corn, that gives me red, yellow, and black.... sometimes I'll add carrot....

Tastes really good, but little to oily for me. I only used 1/2 cup but still to much. Next time I'll use 1/3 or a 1/4 & see how it goes

Used fresh oregano & basil from the garden & left over brown rice...we all loved it, but one person wanted it a little hotter

Very good! Will make this again but I think I will add green onions. I think that will make a really good recipe even better!

Reduce the oil, added kidney beans with the black beans, a small can of kidney beans and chopped some jalapeno peppers for a little kick to it. Everyone ate it up .

I added beans I already had in the pantry. You just can't go wrong with this recipe

Good wholesome recipe with simple instructions. I would recommend using less red wine vinegar and oil than indicated... add in to taste. This is a very nutritious recipe.

Great summer salad. I made it with brown rice and less oil, and fresh herbs.I also sprinkled tortilla chips on top which I highly recommend. I will definitely make this again.
