I think I'd substitute black beans for the kidney beans, and maybe not include the corn, since so much of it is GMO now and inflammatory. Otherwise looks like a great recipe.

Chipotle vinaigrette sounds delicious. Both salad and dressing look easy to do and I love easy and healthy things. Thank you!
