Very easy, and very tasty thnks Evelyn. I made this to be eaten warm, as a side with hamburgers. As it was our only vegetable, I substituted some of the corn for frozen baby peas, which made it very cocourful.
The flavor of this salad was really good, but I will use a little less vinegar when I make it again. This will be a good recipe to have when we grill. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
