"This is a nice change and goes great with a Tortilla or Mexican Casserole. A quick and easy recipe that is great using shortcuts (I love shortcuts). I add the Quick Chili Croutons for an extra zip. My family really enjoyed this salad which I got from Kraftfoods.com."

"Fun idea & a nice change of pace with simple things usually on hand. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Made for Spring 2011 Pick A Chef."
"Loved this idea! Just because I had them on hand, I also added black beans and grilled chicken strips to make it a full meal. Delicious and very pretty looking!"
"Nice salad! I added grilled chicken. I just piled the ingredients onto 2 plates for DH and I for dinner. I used Chipotle dressing and we just each added our own to our plate. I don't like as much salad dressing as DH. Next time I would add some drained and rinsed black beans. Made for The Best of 2009 Cookboook Swap."
"This salad is CRAZY good!!! I went light on the cilantro and used broken-up fritos for the croutons. The sweetness of the corn and red pepper was the perfect match to the spicy dressing. I served this as a side dish but will have it as the main course next time - it's that good! Thanks for posting this winner! Made for Spring PAC 2009"
"I made this for dinner last night, and both my boyfriend and I thought it was delicious. We're not huge cilantro fans, so I prolly used about 1/4 of what the recipe calls for and just used a little bit more corn. I also threw some chicken and bacon bits in there as my bf is trying to "bulk up" and needs protein. There was just the right amount of kick, and we both loved it :-)"
"I loved this salad just exactly as the recipe reads. My family felt there was too much cayenne in the dressing. I will make this again and use only half of the cayenne. A real nice Southwest twist on a traditional favorite. I put taco chips out and we used them instead of the croutons."
