"This delicious salad doubles as a great Southwestern-style side dish or as a salsa with chips. The lime and jalapeno give it the perfect zest and kick. My family loves this. So will yours!"

1 1/2 tablespoons
ground black pepper
1 (15 ounce) can
black beans, drained and rinsed
red bell pepper, chopped
chopped green onion
jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced, or to taste
chopped fresh cilantro
fresh lime juice
salt to taste
Really loved this salad the only reason that I did not give it 5 stars is I thought it could use a little more kick. I added a few tablespoons of salsa (Hot and spicy) and that really spiced it up and enhanced the flavor. It is also a great diet food tasty and low cal.
It was good, but nothing special. Liked the spiciness and the lime. Needed something else, though, and I'm not quite sure what. Some vinegar? A little sweet? For a southwest salad/side dish, I like Mexican Bean Salad from this site a lot better.
Fabulous just as is!
Great recipe! I made it exactly as is but used more fajita seasoning to spice it up even more. Turned out fantastic and everyone loved it. I used 8 ears of fresh corn and turned the heat up to medium high because medium just wasn't getting it done well. Will definitely keep and make again!
I didn't have any red bell pepper on hand. Without the bell pepper, it only gets 3 stars. I am pretty sure the bell pepper would have made it 4 stars, so I am rating it accordingly.
Used shoepeg corn because I had a can open and it was still good. I will try fresh that I've grilled next time.
