Love this recipe, I always get compliments. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Best. Salad. Ever. I made it for a cookout we were invited to and my husband and I contemplated staying home so we could have the whole bowl to ourselves! Reduced honey to two tablespoons as others have suggested. Left out the green onions. It didn't seem to need both red and green. It was quick and easy and I will make it again and again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
It was okay - not as tasty as I would expect, and I followed the recipe exactly. The black bean and pineapple just don't have the chemistry. A friend thought it was delicious though, so it's subjective. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this delicious salad with baby back ribs and grilled chicken for Father's Day. HUGE hit. Everyone loved the meat but said the bean salad was the star. I even forgot the pinch of cumin and used a dash of sarachi sauce in place of the jalapeno. KNOCK-OUT recipe. The pineapple was a surprising addition that really made the salad sing, Finished the dinner off with strawberry shortcake using Paula Dean's individual shortcakes. Thanks Food Network...I can always trust your recipes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Doubled the recipe for a Father's Day event. I wanted leftovers as I made this once before and loved it. It has a great flavor and no oil is a big plus. This will be great in my morning omelet, and just as a lunch salad, too. It is so worth the effort. I can't praise it enough - great combination of flavors. Thanks to Guy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Best bean salad have eaver eaten. Tastes amazing. Wasn't sure about sherry wine when I nipped out to buy some today but it IS the perfect cooking wine for this dish. Yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Took this to a potluck @ work. It was a huge hit with people asking for the recipe. The pineapple and sherry vinegar gave a bright sweet flavor and I was happy that there was no oil. Can use it like a salsa with chips, on top of chicken or just a side. Fantastic! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I decided to make this for a lunch I was attending even though I hadn't tried it before. There wasn't time to make something else if this failed, but I was feeling bold and sassy and wanted to give it a try. It was delicious! Everyone loved it. I didn't change anything. Made it just like the recipe. I was a little nervous when I tasted it after throwing the ingredients together because it was so hot that my lips burned. I let it sit for an hour - just like the recipe says - and then tasted it. Perfection! Will definitely make this again! I love the fact that there is no added oil. It tastes so fresh and light. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I live in Saudi Arabia so I had to adjust the recipe, I was trying to make enough for 30 for a big party, had to have more corn than black beans. Just can't find what you need here. Also I had to use Saudi Red peppers instead of jalepeno. I seeded them because it was for such an international group of people, but being the texas-california girl, I would have left in the seeds and maybe added a splash of tobacco. I made it the night before, the recipe does tell you to add cumin, salt and pepper to taste. Don't be shy, if you like it, put in the flavor. cumin, salt, and pepper…. It withstood the heat and stayed cool for awhile, it's a good thing to do especially for outdoor entertainment when it is extremely hot outside. It's a keeper for me. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I was looking for a healthy recipe with black beans as I'm on weight watchers maint. Wasn't sure if I was going to like this as I have never eaten anything such as this. It was scrumptious, husband couldn't stop eating it and my friend from Arizona loved it as well. It was great with baked tortilla chips. Not to sweet and did think it would be spicy because of the jalapeño pepper it was not at all. . item not reviewed by moderator and published
ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS!! The crisp sweet clean flavors of this salad is sure to compliment dinners from tacos to fajitas to anything from the grill!! I made a few slight changes only to suit my family but I'm more than sure this in its entirety would be perfection! I omitted the cumin & jalapeño. I added 1/4 cup of diced mango and a bit of extra diced red onion. I also added the juice of a whole lime rather than half and I lessen the honey to 2 tablespoons instead of three because of added sweetness of the extra fruit I included. I can't say enough about this, it is just so so flavorful. I have shared it with friends and family. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awesome! We make this as a side dish for fish tacos all the time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love the different flavors that are combined in this recipe. It is sweet with a little surprise of pineapple. Really enjoyed eating this! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is my favorite black bean corn salad and I've made it at least a dozen times so I thought I would finally give Guy the proper kudos and thanks! We like things with a kick, so I use serrano peppers (yes, plural ... but I always do a little taste testing before adding the pepper to make sure it's not overly hot. I find most jalapenos taste more like green peppers, but it depends on the season. I mix all the veggies/beans together and make the vinaigrette separately, adding garlic put through a press. Because I use mangos or mandarin oranges, I cut back on the honey otherwise it's too sweet, and I use quite a bit more fresh squeeze lime juice, adding a bit more if needed after everything is mixed together. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this last 4th of July and we found it to be too strong. Made some revisions, and it was divine! Just sauté the onions, and peppers for a bit to take out the raw taste. I added 2 ears of fresh corn, shucked, and omitted the cilantro simply because I don't care for the "soapy" taste. It was the best! Now it's a staple recipe and easy to transport to summer parties! item not reviewed by moderator and published

One word, YUM! It's super hot here in Vegas (115 yesterday! so we were looking for something light and cold to go with our meal. Super easy to make - albeit a good number of ingredients. I used frozen corn, omitted the green onion (not sure why you need red and green onions and reduced the honey based on comments here. And when folks say to leave the pineapple in even though it seems weird - we completely agree, it really is a nice combination of flavors. This recipe is definitely in the rotation now and perfect for those hot summer days - Thanks Guy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've made this salad several times and each time it's amazingly good!!! Even my friend who doesn't like black beans, absolutely loved this salad. I almost didn't add the pineapple the first time I made it, because it sounded a bit odd to me, but I'm glad I added it! It's a wonderful medley of flavors! Make sure you use fresh pineapple, not canned. I tried that one time, and that was not good. Fresh is the only way to go. I put this over a bed of spinach, or Butter lettuce, or as a side to any BBQ. Extremely easy, healthy and yummy! My go to bean salad! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I had really high expactations of this recipe based on the 200+ 5 star ratings...but I didn't honestly think it was that great. There is almost too much crunch with the ingrediants. I liked it but didn't love it as much as the over reviewers. If I make this again, I will have to make a few modifications to the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This salad is amazing. I have been making it for over a year now on regular basis. i omit the pineapple and never missed it. Works great on taco nights. Have made it with agave instead of honey, and it tastes just as great. Very easy and very delicious. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This bean salad is absolutely delicious. Full of flavor, especially compared to other, more bland, black bean salads. I have made it three times. This time I used a little less honey (about a tablespoon and a half because my husband found it a tad too sweet last time, but the flavor is awesome. Definitely worth adding to your recipe collection! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This salad recipe is awesome! I halfed it somewhat since it was only two people eating it (added one can of black beans instead of two, kept the can of corn at one, and just adjusted the other add-ins accordingly and couldn't believe how fresh and flavorful it was. It's a great addition to any southwestern main courses that have a kick to them. It was even good the next day. I will definitely be making this again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love this recipe! The dish tastes more amazing than it looks because of how the sum of all the ingredients blend together to create incredible / indescribable flavor. Yummo! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used this recipe this week at Camp Monterey (Tennessee girls camp since camp was coming to a close. We had everything but the pineapple. It was quick and easy and looked fabulous in our salad bar area. It was such a hit that I decided to make a double batch to last us through the next few days.

I made this with a 10-bean blend that I had in a crock pot on low all day. Using canned beans would yield a much better texture that my somewhat mushy bean blend. I loved this salad! It contained a lot of fresh vegetables and was very refreshing served cold.I didn't have sherry vinegar, so I used red-wine instead and it was delicious. The pineapple gave each bite an unexpected sweetness that I really loved. I can't wait to try it tomorrow after all of the flavors have really blended. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I liked it. Personally I would use even MORE cilantro, since I like that flavor a lot. Didn't really taste the pinch of cumin. I'm guessing a half teaspoon to a teaspoon wouldn't hurt. I don't like SPICY, but a tiny little kick I'm ok with. The jalapeno I used had no heat at all in it. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Loved it! Easy and great flavor. I couldn't find sherry vinegar and just used red wine vinegar. I will make this again when I find sherry vinegar; I think that will make it even better. Almost forgot ... I used about 3/4 teaspoon of salt and that was more than enough .. next time I will probably use 1/2 teaspoon item not reviewed by moderator and published

I'm not one to typically write reviews, but I had to for this! It was excellent. We made it for a barbecue. Everyone loved it.

Thanks, Guy! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Love this recipe. It takes awhile to cut everything up but well worth it. I substituted fresh-cut-off-the-cob corn and balsamic vinegar for the sherry vinegar. I'll be making this again for sure. item not reviewed by moderator and published
What a great and healthy recipe! I did however substitute the dressing, for 3 tbs of lighthouse balsamic vinaigrette, located in the salad section of the store. SO good. I also am going to leave out the jalapeno next time, makes it a little spicy.. if you are a fan of spicy go for it! I also left out the pineapple and it tasted amazing! GREAT FLAVOR! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent flavor. Have made it twice for company and everyone love the flavor. I do not like raw onions much and left them out and it was still fabulous item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent!!! I made this for a family reunion picnic and it turned out GREAT!!! I was looking for a recipe that was easy and fast. I did substitute red wine vinegar for the sherry vinegar. I wasn't sure about the pineapple. But it was GOOD in it! I made sure the onions were tiny so people who don't really like them wouldn't see them. I even chopped the cilantro very small. I needed a little more than the recipe made, so I added drained garbanzo beans and a little more lime juice. It was SO YUMMY!!! I put tortilla chips with it for those who wanted to eat it like a dip. Everyone liked it. Even the little kids came back for seconds. Sadly, there were no leftovers for later. I didn't have time to refrigerate for 1 hour, but will definitely try that next time. Thanks Guy for a real hit!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

Love this recipe! Just got done making it and I used a serrano instead of a jalapeno to add more heat. Seems like I have been making it once a week since my son's been home from college.

Where I live, it is not guaranteed that all ingredients can be found in the groceries store.

I've made this several times. I change it up a little though. I usually use canned pineapple and use 2 cups of frozen corn. I dont even cook it first, just throw it in. I didnt feel like buying sherry vinegar so i used red wine vinegar and it was great. I like the heat and dont seed the jalapenos. It's nice and spicy. Everyone loves it. It's great side at BBQ's, or can be used as a salsa. item not reviewed by moderator and published

This recipe was super easy to make and had great flavor. I used white balsalmic vinegar since I didn't have sherry vinegar.

This was so good that only half of it made it to the 'fridge to "chill for 1 hour"! Thanks to the many who said it's OK to sub red wine vinegar. The pineapple really makes the dish...who'd have thought?? Excellent dish and it's easy to tweek as needed. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I love this recipe. My three girls ate it all up so that must mean it was good, since they are picky! I made two batches one with jalepeno and one without (to have a non-spicy option for my girls).
