I took this salad to a family event and was asked by more than one person for the recipe. It was a hit! The salsa was a very creative touch - will make again. Thanks for sharing!

Added corn, avocado and used a mango-salsa.

This salad was super easy and so delicious! It was even better the next day for lunch. It reminds me a little of the bean salad you can buy that is slightly pickled. DELICIOUS!

This is a very yummy bean salad! I made two changes, I cut the amount of vinegar in half, and I used parsley and dried cilantro instead of fresh cilantro, because I didn't have any :)I loved it ...
