Honestly, I made the sauce and made my own salad. If I had known how to make this stuff myself, I'd have never told anyone and kept the recipe a personal secret! This can also be used as a sauce. I put it on leftover rice and jerk chicken and I plan to put it on breakfast burrito leftovers too. The flavor is very clean and bright and much more healthy than any salad dressing. An ingenious way to incorporate more beans into one's diet. Protein power.



Great vinaigrette! I did not use the hot pepper sauce, as I served it to my kids & they enjoyed it as well. I used the vinaigrette with a Tex-Mex salad: romaine, black beans, corn, tomatoes, bell peppers & tortilla chips. Very tasty - this will be a staple vinaigrette.



Points for creativity on the bean thing. Unfortunately, being a bean-based does taste like souped-up beans in my book. Good beans, mind you, but still... I added more of the other stuff to kinda down-play the starch factor, and I splashed in plenty of green tabasco. Then I sweetened it up with a little sugar, and guess what -- Total vinaigrette success! I did put it on a more Mexican-style salad per the previous poster's suggestion. Yummy :)
