    Tip:

    Black turtle beans, or simply 'black beans' for short, are especially common in Latin American cuisine. High in fibre and packed with nutrients, they're a healthy addition to any dish. If you can't find tinned black beans, use dried.

    I am not quite sure why the 1 user didn't care for this dish. I made the mistake of fixing it last night for a mexican theme tonight. Now I have to fix another bowl today because there is only about a cup left. This is such an easy recipe and it does NOT have to be followed by the letter to turn out grand.....Be creative...  -  12 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    This was excellent. The changes I made are to first DRAIN AND RINSE THE BEANS. The first time I made it I did not and it got sloppy and mushy. I used frozen white shoepeg corn, only because I personally hate canned corn (if you use canned I'd drain that too), and I used one can black beans and one can kidneys - just to add to the color. Also, instead of bottled Italian dressing I made my own with capers, caper juice, white wine, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and garlic - you can probably use any kind of oil/vinegar dressing you like. The jalepeno added just enough spice, I'd personally use a little more but this was fine. Oh - and I used whole grape tomatoes, sliced ones may make it too runny also.  -  21 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    This made for a beautiful salad-the color combination was great. Someone mentioned how horrible it looked-they must not have drained the beans is all I can figure. I did make a few changes. I added some cumin, cayenne pepper and chili powder. After I had it all mixed up I thought it was screaming for pasta so I added about a cup of cooked rotini. I used red and green peppers and also added a bit of chopped celery. I left the pimentos out because it was red enough and didn't have the avocado so I skipped that as well. My end result was a very tasty and pretty side dish.  -  27 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
