I just love this salad in the summertime but have made it all through the year, too. People ask me to bring this to gatherings because they like it so well. Enjoy!

How to Make Barb's Black Bean Salad


  1. In a medium bowl, add first 5 ingredients and whisk well. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add the rest of the ingredients. Mix well. Whisk dressing again and pour over veggies. With a large spoon, gently and thoroughly mix together. Refrigerate overnight for best results.
  3. NOTE: I've also turned this into a rice salad on occasion. Use 2 cups of cooked Basmati rice and double the dressing recipe (the first five ingredients) above. It's all good!
