"Refreshing! Light! Great way to use that last cob of grilled corn. Gives the dish a light smokey flavor. Good for picnics, camping,& pot luck. Makes a good side as well as a meal. Using it as a relish to top grilled salmon or tuna. Try dipping tortilla chips into it."
Serving Size: 1 (146 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 6
"Excellent - I use as a salad or main course :) I double dressing and add a large can of rinsed black beans and 8oz cooked pasta (mini farfalle) - might also be good with rice. Yummy! Served at a potluck and none left; also serving for Thanksgiving."
"Absolutely loved it! Pre-made it for a camping trip, I had to heat it a little because the oil hardened but it was no problem."
"This is fantastic. I've made it many times. The only reason I have given 4 stars instead of 5 is because I think the amount of salt called for is excessive, even after the flavors are allowed to meld. Every time I've made it, I've always halved the amount of salt, but even with only half the amount, I've still found it to be too salty. From now on, I will reduce the amount of salt even further, and just add more later if needed. This is a great salad, though, and I plan to continue to make it often."
"I made this to go with salmon patties tonight and it was very good! My husband really liked it and I will be making this again. Tomorrow I will take the remaining salad to a potluck for a lady who is moving in our art class. Thanks so much!"
"Love this recipe! I could eat it everyday. I do change a few things, due to personal taste. I use a whole cup of tomatoes and omit the red bell pepper and jalapenos. I also use less oil and more sugar in the dressing."
"This was exellent! Only chages I made were omit the oregano and sugar and used balsamic vinegar. We ate it with tortilla chips like a salsa. My sister made a salad with the left overs (chicken, lettuce, ranch and salsa) and said it made a tasty salad. Will definitely make it again!"
"We loved this! Used Trader Joe's frozen roasted corn (I do apologize if you don't have one in your area). Also added 1 can of drained diced fire-roasted tomatoes. I also put it all together several hours early and let the flavours meld all afternoon. This will definitely become a summer favourite!"
"Fabulous! I used green onions instead of red, 1/2 olive oil and 1/2 vegetable oil, and a little extra sugar and lime juice b/c my red wine vinegar was quite sour. I subbed 1 small can of Ro-tel for the tomato and jalapeno, added a couple of dashes of hot sauce, and used the combination of cilantro, parsley and basil for the herbs. I also "grilled" a can of corn under the broiler until charred, as was suggested by another reviewer (thank you!). I've made many black bean and corn salads and this one is the best yet! Thank you Rita!"
"Absolutely love this recipe! We enjoy it with tortilla chips. It is a great way to get your family to eat some healthy vegetables and legumes. Thank you."
"Very tasty, We had a Mexican/Spanish dinner party and this was one of the dishes I served. Everyone liked this dish, not to say, it looked beautiful. Very appetizing. Thanks for sharing."
"Oh Rita! No surprise, I loved it! The only "changes" were that I used grape seed oil and only one jalapeno because that 's all I had. Thanks for all the great recipes~ your biggest fan!"
"I love it! I omitted the oregano and sugar and used all cilantro instead of the combo of three. Turned out great!"
"This was great. I really enjoyed it, by itself as a salad and with chips as a dip. The only thing that I would change the next time I make it to reduce some of the seasoning. They were a bit overwhelming for my taste."
"i dont know something was missing"
"This such an easy salad to prepare. i reduced the cumin and oregano to 1/2 tsp each and omitted the salt. Thanks for the recipe"
"GREAT recipe!! We have this at football game tailgates and I am making it for this July 4th. I don't know if anyone else does this but we use this as a dip and dip with tortilla chips! It is AWESOME! I could probably eat me weight in it! I lost my recipe for this "salad/dip" so thank you so much for sharing!!"
"This has become a family favorite, since my cousin gave me the recipe last summer. Besides making it at least twice a month (we double the dressing to cut down on time fo the next time we make it), we take to all summer barbecues. Everyone raves about it. I also add a can of canned tomatoes, cut up."
"This is a keeper! I followed the recipe exactly and love it. I'm serving it with French Tart's Smoky Chicken and Chorizo Mexican Enchilada Baked Casserole, and rice on the side. Thanks for the recipe!"
"Sweet bajeezus.. this is perfect- EXACTLY as is. Do not change a thing!!! So good!"
"Loved this salad. Made half a recipe and we still have leftovers. Served with Recipe #137007, Recipe #149385."
