    Scoutie's Note:

    A delicious summer salad! I use a bit less of the cumin for my family's taste. I have used the frozen corn with good results as well. The flavors mix SO well together, make sure you give them a chance to marry. Prep time does not include the chilling time. Adapted from Food Network, the Giada Show. Hope you enjoy!

      Delicious. Very pretty and colorful salad. The basil-lime vinaigrette makes it! Will definitely make again. A unique, flavorful and healthy salad.

      The flavors were great in this and it was beautiful to look at. I followed your lead and halved the cumin. I also used only one tablespoon of oil for our tastes and omitted the garbanzos, since they didn't seem to fit to us. Grilling/cutting the corn takes some extra time, but it is worth the taste. And I agree on the basil and lime being integral.
