this was lovely! so yummy! the combination of corn, cumin and avacado just worked so well - and with tabasco too! i made this for a bbq and served it with baked potatoes, cheese and sour cream! delicious!
Perfect lunch!! I got a bag of frozen Ultimate Southwest Blend Veggies (black beans, corn, poblano peppers, red peppers and onions). All I had to do was add the avocado and spices. Great mix of flavors and very colorful! Thanks!
Man oh man - this is such a great side for any outdoor summer meal! It was terrific with our grilled London Broil. This is a beautiful salad, and I love it that the red comes from red bell pepper instead of tomotoes. I kicked it up with a couple extra shakes of Tabasco and used leftover grilled corn cut of the cob, and it was to-die-for! Thanks Di!
