I was looking for a new use for black beans and this recipe seemed interesting. Its fresh with a hint if sweetness from the honey and jam. I did substitute peach jam instead of marmalade.-22 Apr 2012

Light, refreshing and tasty. Didn't have orange marmalade or the peach marmalade as called out by the other reviewer. Used black raspberry jam instead and canned corn. Such a versatile recipe that you can substitute the jam you have on hand as well as other ingredients. Recipe is definitely a keeper.-22 Jul 2012

After a while, it seems that all recipes for salads with cucumbers, black beans, corn, and cumin taste alike. This one has differentiated itself by using the honey and orange marmalade in its dressing which gives it just the right amount of sweetness. Will make this one again and most likely cut back the olive oil to 2 Tbsp.-08 Mar 2013

Changes and swaps

Jicama would be an excellent addition to this salad, or you could swap the cucumber with it. Marinate it in some of the dressing in advance for a more flavorful result.

Mix some jalapaneos with your bell peppers for a spicy version.

Add a mixture of a variety of bean types for more visual interest.

Use a higher ratio of beans for a more filling salad. This also works well if you plan to fill a burrito with it.

If you want to heat your burrito, swap out the lettuce cucumber for more beans, peppers, jicama, or marinated radish.

The beans go really well with the sweet ginger citrus dressing. The dressing brightens up the beans and corn.


You can swap the miso paste for tamari, soy sauce, sea salt, or omit altogether.

You can swap the orange juice with apple sauce, apple butter, or another citrus of your choice. You may need to adjust the amount of sweetener to compensate.

Quinoa Is a Versatile Superfood

Quinoa’s fluffy texture and versatility easily add protein, antioxidants, and B vitamins to vegetarian or vegan dishes, and it’s yummy at any temperature.

Is quinoa gluten-free? Yes, quinoa is entirely gluten-free while still providing complex carbs.

This superfood is easy to substitute into almost any recipe. Its subtle, nutty taste makes it an excellent fit for beefing up soups, salads, side dishes, or even breakfast bowls with a little extra nutrition.

This versatile seed comes in a variety of colors. The most common available are white, red, and tri-color which is a blend of white, red and black. White quinoa is the fluffiest so it’s best as a replacement in rice dishes. Red and tricolor work best in salads because they have a firmer texture and hold their shape without becoming too mushy.

This quinoa salad actually tastes better after a day once the flavors meld. The salad itself comes together quickly, and will keep in the fridge for 3-5 days.

This Cucumber, Corn, Black Bean, and Avocado Salad Is Delicious and Filling

This refreshing salad is crafted with basic ingredients, but it's a delicious, low-calorie way to combine the complementary flavors of cucumbers, tomatoes, and cilantro. We don't blame you if you eat this salad every single day — it's that good. It takes about 10 minutes to make and I think it tastes even better the next day!

At under 300 calories, one serving offers almost 12 grams of fiber and 10 grams of protein, so after enjoying one crunchy bite after another, you'll feel full, satisfied, and energized. With such a high fiber and water content, this recipe can help prevent belly bloat.

Leftovers save well, so make it ahead!

Another feature of this black bean salad: it can sit in the refrigerator for up to 3 days without losing flavor, so it’s perfect for making ahead and eating off of all week. Or for sitting for hours on the potluck table. When I saw it had ½ cup apple cider vinegar, I knew we’d love it. A lot of salads lose flavor over time, but using a lot of apple cider vinegar helps it to stay tangy in the fridge for days.
