Chicken and Black Bean Salad

chicken and black bean saladTaking a never-been-made recipe to a pot luck takes great courage. I’ve never been one to shy away from risk however, so last night I brought this salad to a friend’s home. It was an amazing hit!!  I made the dressing in a jelly jar, zip-locked the beans, corn, red pepper, and onions in one bag, the chicken in another, brought organic Romaine in it’s store-bought container, and assembled it all in a large bowl at the party instead of on individual plates. It was fresh, cool on a hot summer’s night, EASY, and healthy. Raves all around throughout the dinner! Thank you Taste of Home!
