I've tried several versions of this at summer barbecues and potlucks, and have been looking for a recipe. This one looks easy to make and really delicious. The colours in this are so bright and appealing and would go great with taco chips or any cracker. I would probably use a homemade vinaigrette instead of bottled dressing for this, but in a pinch, it's nice to have an easy option!

This has a good fresh, healthy appeal to it. I will use chopped fresh tomatoes instead and I will only lightly garnish with cilantro and provide more on the side for those who really like it. You could also use hominy corn for a bolder corn taste, white or yellow, but make sure you try it first before using in the recipe.

If you don't like black beans, you can simply leave them out. If you want, you could add extra corn, tomatoes, and peppers.


Is it the beans you have a problem with or black beans? If it is just the black beans, substitute cannellini beans. I really like having the beans in it so it will be a complete protein with the corn for those meatless Mondays. I always make a double recipe and it never lasts long. This is one thing that even the grandkids love and they are beyond picky. I don't use this exact recipe, but mine is similar enough and I do change it up depending on what I have on hand, but, to me, the beans, corn and cilantro are required. I can find good substitutes for most eveyrthing else. My recipe calls for red bell pepper and no tomatoes, but if I don't have the red pepper, I put chopped fresh tomatoes in it for the color.
