    Great Flavor, Linorama! It just gets better as it sits. I grilled & sliced some chicken and served it as a main dish. I also found you can cut the oil in half and still have a great salad.

    It's not quite my favorite black bean and corn salad, but it's quite good! I only let it marinate 1 hour and used a sweet frozen corn which I defrosted. It has a great texture to it, but next time I might add a tomato. I had to reduce the red onion I used due to my BF's taste, and I cut it up very small. I also reduced the oil by quite a bit and added some black olives that I had in the refrigerator. I ate the leftovers for breakfast the next day, a sure sign of a winner.:D

    I liked this. Definitely better the next day. I added some fresh cilantro and a can of tuna (but I had halved the recipie). Satisfying and crisp. Great for a cold lunch.

    This is an excellent recipe. I have made it several times and can't believe I forgot to rate it. Light and healthy. Thanks Linorama for sharing the recipe.

    Awesome recipe! I took this dish to a fish fry, where the main dish was fish tacos and it was a hit. The pickled jalapenos added a nice bit of spice that didn't over power the flavor of the salad. Will definitely make it again.

Thanks for visiting my page! I'm a stay-at-home wife and mother - married for 20 years with a 16-year old daughter. It seems funny to be married so long since it just feels like yesterday when my handsome groom and I walked down the aisle. I love to cook and especially bake. I bake a lot less than I used to just because it's too tempting for me to have all those goodies sitting around. But give me a good snow day, and the oven goes into high gear! I like to sew & quilt, draw & paint, read, and play word games. My husband and I are total nerds -- we Tivo Jeopardy every day. :-) We all love old movies, especially anything with Cary Grant, Fred Astaire, Jimmy Stewart, Myrna Loy, William Powell, etc. OH - and Andy Hardy movies - they're the best!
