Southwestern Bean Salad
Total TimePrep: 10 min. + chilling
It was really good as written, but it was really great when I added a can of diced jalapenos and 1 Tbs. of cilantro. My family likes things on the spicy side. We ate it as a salad and tried it as a dip too - works beautifully both ways.
This makes a big batch so it would be good for potlucks or reunions. I ate it as a salad & my son is eating it as a dip.
All i can say is yum. Will be making this again. Everyone enjoyed it.
I have been making this recipe since I found it in the magazine years and years ago! We love it!
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 have been makeing this receipe since 1995.
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.
