This is a wonderful summer salad and easy to make too. Love the addition of corn and beans (though I do have to admit to using canned) it was fresh and filling. The next day we added chicken to the left overs and had a wonderful light dinner with an added bread roll. Made for My 3-chefs" 20121Reply
