This is one of my favorite "Go To" dishes for summer gatherings. The flavors are so light and fresh. Since some family members aren't crazy about black beans I use one can of black and one can of kidney. For a very large gathering I mix it up even more by throwing in a can of blackeye peas. Per another rating, I will use cumin at times. If you like avocado, go ahead and add some. I always get rave reviews for this dish and it is often requested when I'm attending other BBQ's.
Great side dish and a snap to put together. We l-o-v-e cumin so in it went. Lots of cumin and some red pepper. No leftovers. Super option for the summer when you might worry about mayonnaise-based dishes.
Great recipe!!! and very quick to make! Perfect as a side for a mexican dish or snack/ picnic item. Healthy and lasts in the fridge for days dressed! I like spicy, so I had extra cayanne and throw in a hot pepper instead of a jalapeno. Bon App!!
