Oh my God! I have been making this salad for ever, not this one exacly but a version of it. Since I'm from Guatemala, all the salsa-like dishes are very popular. No only is this delicious but also healthy and hip-friendly. What I do different is that instead of the dressing i use lemon, salt, pepper and just a little olive oil. This helps to enhace the flavor of the other ingredients, not fight them. I use about 1/4 cup of fresh, chopped cilantro (the flavor secret herb!), fresh chopped tomatoes (you are going to see the difference in flavor, consistency and low the sodium), 1 clove of fresh garlic instead of the powder one. I use the beans i cook (we always have home cooked beans in almost every home in Guatemala)but have try the canned ones, just rinse them and let them dry, the same with the sweet corn. The jalapeno is optional for me, since i don't like spice food I leave out, but for the guys I added. One last thing, let stand on the fridge for at least 1 day to let all the flavors come together.

This recipe goes in my "all time best" file! Excellent flavor. I did make a couple of changes for the better: Use green onion (3 w/tops) instead of regular onion, used 1 cup of frozen super sweet corn instead of canned, used 3-4 pieces of minced garlic instead of the powder, used chopped grape tomatoes instead of canned, used Good Seasons Zesty Italian following the lower fat recipe on the package, added a big pinch of chili powder, cumin and salt. There has never been one bit of this left! You will love it!

I have to agree with everyone, its definately addicting! I, like others, added a little cilantro, two fresh tomatoes, and two cloves of garlic. Because the chips I served were salty, I left off the Zesty Italian Dressing, and used an additional can of Mexican style stewed tomatoes. With the additional ingredients it tasted more like a salsa rather than a salad.
