So easy and so good! I used 2 chipotles (and no jalapenos) and a shallot in place of the green onions. Other than that, I followed the recipe. I love the idea of using creamed corn as the base for the dressing. No added oil and none needed!
What a super bean salad. We enjoyed this dish very much. It was nice and spicy with complimenting flavors and textures. The heat from the peppers was perfect. I served the salad in corn scoopables to enjoy as an appetizer. Thanks so much for sharing your tasty recipe Rita. :)
This is a healthy, protein-rich recipe. I served it with rice. Next time I will halve the recipe as it made quite a bit for two people. Thanks for sharing.
