Black Bean-Taco Salad with Lime Vinaigrette

Ready in 20 minutes

Great Salad - Give it a try!

"I made this taco salad last night when it was so hot I didn't want to do any cooking to heat up the house. The whole family enjoyed this recipe; one of my sons who hates vegeatbles even had seconds.

I particularly liked the lime and cilantro flavors in the vinaigrette in addition to the regular taco seasoning of cumin.

I did add some salsa to the top of my salad because I am a fan of spicier food but overall this is a great recipe and it assembles so fast and easy!"

This is a great salad. Very flavorful, reminds me of Cafe Rio salads

I thought the vinaigrette was a little too sour for me. I think I will stick to my regular dressing of medium salsa with sour cream.
