Comment on black bean confetti salad by Karina Lake

Not sure why I waited so long to comment – I make this every summer as a side dish and it never disappoints! This year I bought a big jar of chile-lime seasoning salt from Costco and was excited to use it in place of plain salt – delicious! I didn’t have any fresh chile so I added 1/2 tsp. of chipotle powder, which has a kick, and is smoky. There are so many variations on this, the mind reels with possibilities!
