Great bean salad! I added much more lime juice, more garlic, a bit more salt and reduced the oil. Plus, I did equal amounts of corn and beans. Also, to avoid "mushiness", I added the tomato and avacado very last, after mixing the dressing in with the other ingredients. I gave it one last toss just before serving to coat the avacado and tomato. Very good!

One of the best recipes on this site. You MUST use fresh lime juice- not that icky stuff in a plastic lime- if you want great flavor. I have made this recipe more times than I can count and there's always half a dozen people at any party who station themselves in front of it and just chow it down all night. Tonight I made it with a little twist- I added 8 oz. of bowtie pasta and doubled the dressing to compenstate. It makes a great southwestern pasta salad! Hit of the party.

This salad is so yummy and super versatile. It’s great by itself, or for a full dinner we like to grill some chicken breasts and throw it all on baked corn tortillas with lettuce for a tostada salad. The only changes to the actual salad we make are that we use finely diced purple onion instead of the green onion and add a bit more spice to the dressing. I’m not a cilantro fan by any means, but I think it’s vital to this salad. I just chop it very fine and use a little less. The only problem I have with this salad is that it doesn’t make the best leftovers. It’s tasty the next day, but the tang of the lime and the cilantro can’t survive the cold of the ‘fridge overnight and it loses it’s ‘zing.’ Definitely the best on the day it's made.
