Southwestern Bean Salad Recipe

My daughter gave me the recipe for this hearty, zippy salad. I've used it many times and received compliments. When it comes to bean salad, most people think of the sweet three-bean variety, so this is a nice surprise. - Lila Jean Allen, Portland, Oregon

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 27, 2013

I've used this recipe many times and it is always a big hit. When my family does a beach day or weekend I always make this and potato salad. The bean salad can be eaten as a meal in itself or as a side with sandwiches or atop a salad as pictured on the recipe. I triple the recipe as I have a large family and it keeps in the fridge nicely, but I couldn't say for how long since it always disappears too quickly! (I've even topped scrambled eggs or tortilla chips with it) YUM!

I didn't have quite enough salsa, so added some creamy salsa ranch bottled dressing and half a diced zucchini. I also omitted the corn, which some people in my family can't eat. This is a yummy recipe!

Tastes very good and my mother-in-law who usually doesn't like bean salad loved it . Our family agrees that it tastes better the next day.

I've made this recipe for years. I love it, and have received compliments if I take it to a picnic. I also enjoy this salad in pita bread.
