  • “My 15 year old daughter is a vegetarian and loved this easy to make recipe. It is very refreshing. Thanks for the recipe.”

  • “This is really good! I left out the bell pepper and onion because I don’t like them. But kept everything else true to the recipe. The flavor is very good! It’s hard not to eat all of it at once.”

  • “I really enjoyed this! I used a can of corn and a can of black beans, then just eyeballed the rest of the ingredients. The cilantro makes the dish, in my opinion.”

  • “I made this in order to make Recipe #329481.I cooked my own dried black beans and used canned corn.This made into a very nice and light salsa, but I did wind up adding more garlic and cumin…simply my personal taste.Thank you for a lovely easy recipe.”

  • “Fabulous recipe! I’ve made it a couple of times once with fresh corn & once with canned. It came out great both ways.I add more lime, more cilantro, some fresh tomatoes & a splash of vinegar.Thanks for posting.”

  • “Very very good and light.I will certainly make this again and again.I used my one can of black beans I had been saving for something special to make this, no black beans in France, but I think it will be good with red beans too. I am a cilantro hater and gritted my teeth and put in a tsp, then went back and put in the rest.Good stuff!”

  • “I love salsa with a heavy cilantro and lime flavor and this was great.I made it for a pot luck bbq and the best part was making it.The lime and cilantro scent just filled the house and made me sooo happy.I used more lime juice…from 3 fresh limes.It’s awesome.It’s going to become “MY” specail salsa recipe.”

  • “This is such a great recipe. Thanks for posting it – I’ll definitely be making this again.”

  • “I’ve been making this recipe for a few years now and have always served it with fresh yellow fin tuna. Oh my! How yummy. A few things were different with my recipe. I add green onion instead of red and alot of chili powder. Also, to get the best flavor make it one day ahead of time. Let the beans soak up a bit of the flavor. “

  • “this was fabulous!!! the flavors blended so well together!!! this will be made quite often in our house. i served it with grilled fajitas gauc and salsa. thanks for the great addition to my recipe file!!!”
