This salad reflects the Caribbean culture here in South Florida. The combination of black beans, tomatoes and onions with a vinaigrette is great alongside pork or chicken. It’s perfect for picnics and convenient, too, since you can make it a day ahead.
“This dish is a hit and it keeps beautifully in the refrigerator for days,” says Erika Shupe of Mount Vernon, Washington. “With pasta, veggies and cheese, it’s a complete meal that’s filling and flavorful!”
A refreshing medley of fruits and berries goes into Paula Baglole's short and sweet recipe. “It's a favorite dessert or side salad,” she writes. “If there's any left, we have it the next morning for breakfast.”
I found this recipe in a local newspaper several years ago and reworked it to my family's taste. So far everyone who has it asks for more! It is a perfect fast and easy dish.—Mary Javor, Hastings, Michigan
