"This was excellent. I used fresh pick corn and took it off the cob. Very/ fresh and flavorful!! A winner at my dinner table. The left overs I extended the next day with more tomatoes and orange peppers with a tad of jalapeno. Excellent!!!"

"I thought this was just average. The flavor is different and fresh tasting, just a little too intense."

"I just made this without the red onion and cilantro, since I didn't have any. Very good summer flavor, refreshing. If you are diabetic and can't eat this, I don't understand why you would give this recipe a bad rating. I can no longer eat shrimp because I'm allergic, but I don't post bad ratings on recipes that feature shrimp."

"Fabulous salad! Delicious warm or cold. I'm not a fan of cilantro so I substituted fresh parsley. I made this with the last fresh corn of the season ... didn't need 9 ears, I got over 5 cups using 6 ears, depends on the size of the ears I'm sure. So good with fresh vegetables and herbs from the farmstand and/or garden."
