    Really nice flavours!

    Made this as a side dish for dinner last night and it was delicious. Hubby loved it too. Had the rest for lunch today with some feta stirred through and it was just as nice. Will definitely be making this again. Omitted almonds as we have nut allergy in the family.

    Made this for a family gathering and it was loved by all. I used brown lentils instead of black beans. Has been saved in my favourites collection.

    YUMMY. I had to leave halfthe ingrediants out as my family apparently doesn't like taste! All I had in it was the onion, the black beans and the almonds. That dressing is delish. Loved my all. Including the "eww quinoa" people. Thanks tmrc_emoticons.)

    This was soooo delicious!  I substituted a few things so that my family would eat it (chickpeas instead of black beans, capsicum and carrot instead of corn, chives and parsely instead of basil and mint, and added chicken).  The dressing is divine.  Such a lovely fresh summer dinner.  Super easy to make too which makes it a winner for me.  Will definitely be made over and over in our house.

    Very tasty!!

    This was really yummy. I added some crumbled feta which was delish! I couldn't find any black bean so I used 100g of wild rice instead which worked. Thank you for this great recipe tmrc_emoticons.)

    This is absolutely delish. Def a keeper to be made over and over again. My 3 kids & husband loved this & they can be a bit fussy when it comes to different types of salads. Thanks for this recipe.

    Amazing!!! My new favourite meal. I did add chicken to mine and omitted the olives but that's only to keep the family happy. The flavour of that dressing is divine!
