Even people who don't like beans compliment me on this delicious salad! It's a favorite at family get-togethers and potlucks. The slimmed-down dressing gets little kick from cilantro and lime. —Teresa Smith of Huron, South Dakota

I was not thrilled with this recipe. In addition, it takes much longer than 15 minutes to fix.

This was delicious. I made it with whole wheat pasta to add to the nutrition value. This is a great side dish to chicken. I'll definitely make it again. In fact, I am taking it to work tomorrow, for a holiday celebration.
