At the height of tomato-growing season, everyone in the family could depend on Mom to make this colorful salad. I can still picture her setting it on the table in a pretty yellow bowl.—Mary Jo Amos, Noel, Missouri
This sensational salad is a delight to serve because you can make it ahead and it's an easy way to put garden bounty to good use. With colorful ingredients like corn, tomato and green pepper, it's also pretty in the bowl and on your plate.

One of the nice things about this salad is how versatile it is. I've taken it to a potluck...to a square dance gathering...and to the field for my husband and the men during haying season! As part of a lunch, it goes well with cold meat, like roast beef, chicken or ham, and buns.
We raised Limousin cattle on the exact quarter section where Barry's dad raised Black Angus for years. We don't have children—but two active bearded collies liven up the place plenty.
Even folks who normally don't care for black beans will find this fresh dish delicious. With its contrasting colors and wonderful cumin dressing, this salad is a great addition to any meal.—Margaret Allen, Abingdon, Virginia
