Black Bean & Corn Salad with Cilantro Dressing

The "Black Bean and Corn Salad with Cilantro Dressing" (page 79) combines black beans, corn, red bell pepper, and red onion with a zesty dressing resulting in a hearty salad with the bold flavors of Southwestern cuisine.  The recipe calls for a 4-ounce can of mild green chiles to be mixed into the beans, corn, and veggies, but instead, I added the chiles to the dressing ingredients in the blender, using them in place of the ¼ cup of olive oil listed.  (The rest of the dressing ingredients included garlic, cilantro, cumin, lime, salt & pepper.)  The result was spectacular, not to mention, it eliminated about 50 grams of fat from this salad!
