Love to take this to "potlucks".Sometimes I add black beans and whole corn. It is very colorful and the taste is out of this world! Its worth trying!!

The first one or two bites is o.k. but after that it's just too much. It is very rich and thick. This is for people who could eat a spoonful of straight mayo without blinking.

I have been making this recipe for years and everyone loves it, some dont want to try it but then once they do they cant get enough, I add black beans, canned corn you can also use kidney beans its really endless what you do to this recipe. and I like more tomatos then it calls for. It is way better if made the night before.

This recipe is great, especially in summertime. I always crumble a few crispy slices of bacon up in mine, and it's even better!

Try this variation--also add chopped cucumber, chopped green onion and crumbled bacon that's been fried to a crisp, otherwise it will get soggy after it sits in the mayo, or you can use Miracle Whip or ranch dressing if you prefer. We are from southern West Virginia and put a scoop of this right smack in the middle of a bowl of fresh cooked pinto beans--yummy!

I would have given this recipe 5 stars but i add a few more ingredients. We like more vegetables and crunch in the salad, so i chop up some cauliflower, cucumber, and celery along with the bell pepper and onion. WONDERFUL salad. and great served with pinto beans along side.

This is very yummy. I only added 1/2 the amount of onion and it was still too much. Also this makes a lot of salad!!! I would recommend cutting in half unless you have a large group.
