This sounds like a great recipe, thanks. I'm going to try it next time the rest of the family is eating Mexican.

I had to bring this thread up to the top. I made this last night and had it for lunch today. This is a dish you absolutely have to try. It's a cool refreshing summer salad, but fills you up. It is so good!

Terry, I love all beans except for black beans. Do you think pintos would work?

I'm not all that knowledgeable about beans, so they all seem pretty interchangeable to me. The salad has an avocado and very light lime flavor, so if you think pintos would work with that, then go for it.

I made this tonight for my sister's retirement potluck party. It was great! Thanks for sharing the recipe.
