This delicious salad doubles as a great Southwestern-style side dish or as a salsa with chips. The lime and jalapeno give it the perfect zest and kick. My family loves this. So will yours!

It was good, but nothing special. Liked the spiciness and the lime. Needed something else, though, and I'm not quite sure what. Some vinegar? A little sweet? For a southwest salad/side dish, I like Mexican Bean Salad from this site a lot better.

Really loved this salad the only reason that I did not give it 5 stars is I thought it could use a little more kick. I added a few tablespoons of salsa (Hot and spicy) and that really spiced it up and enhanced the flavor. It is also a great diet food tasty and low cal.
