This is an easy and tasty salad. It is great for picnics or cook-outs. I received this from a friend at my bridal shower. The majority of the cook time is chilling time - the salad needs to chill and marinate for about 3-8 hours before serving. Fresh cracked black pepper works really well in this.

I made for 2 and had half leftover. Used roasted frozen corn. Great for a hot summer day! Thanks!

Loved this salad! To lighten it up a bit, I used fat-free Italian dressing instead of the olive oil, otherwise made as directed. I liked the smokiness the sauteing of the corn added. Great salad for BBQ's or potlucks - thanks for sharing the recipe!

This is a five-star recipe with winter tomatoes and frozen corn. I can only imagine how good it's going to be when summer comes around!
