Sherry vinegar deepens the lively flavors of this Southwestern salad, and beans and fresh tomatoes keep it moist. Make it a meal: Strawberry-Mango Margarita Compote is a cool finish. Source: EatingWell Magazine, March/April 1994

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Shred chicken and combine with black beans, tomatoes and corn in a salad bowl.

  • Heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and saute until just beginning to color, about 30 seconds. Add oregano and cumin; stir until fragrant, about 10 seconds. Remove from the heat; add vinegar and salt. Pour over the salad. Add scallions and parsley; gently toss to combine.


Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 8 hours.

Tip: To poach chicken breasts: Place boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a medium skillet or saucepan and add lightly salted water to cover; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer gently until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink in the middle, 10 to 12 minutes.
