  • Haven't tried this yet, but I plan to. I'm going to add some fresh diced onion (probably green). I'll most likely garnish with avacado slices. It sounds yummy. Thanks for sharing. - 8/6/10

  • I made a little different version of this salad, omitting the oil and limes. Mine had garlic and onion cooked in a little olive oil and more black beans. The tomatoes would have been a good addition. Overall, it was absolutely great. A good side dish with grilled Tilapia. - 7/22/09
