Reviews for Corn and Black Bean Salad
"I substituted red and green bell peppers for the tomatoes because I didn't have any tomatoes. This got rave reviews - the fresh ingredients were stronger than the canned and it felt extremely fresh and delicious."
"This is super good and a crowd pleaser. I love it as it is, without any changes. Other times I add proteins or pasta to stretch it out. No matter, it gets raves. It's a very adaptable recipe."
"Really delicious!! I have made this salad quite a few times now, and everyone eats it up."
"Great inexpensive recipe to make for a crowd...I increased by 4 and it got rave reviews. I did add fresh chopped green, red, and orange peppers."
"This was great! I actually used a can of refried black beans due to what I had on hand. Everyone loved this recipe. I will definitely make this again!"
"So delicious! I made three changes, I used a quarter teaspoon of sugar which was more than enough, I broiled the corn in the oven to make it more flavorful, and I used only half an onion. As a lover of onions, even I thought that one whole onion was a little excessive."
"I always love this salad....I've been making it for years!!"
"Wonderful. So versatile.Such a great guideline to play with. Have made this several times now, and each time I change a small thing. I have added jalapenos one time, and left out the cilantro (because I was out), used fresh tomatoes, turned out great. Another time I used an Italian canned tomato. You cant go wrong. I do cut the recipe in half as Im feeding 2, not 8. Tastes even better the next day."
"Everytime I make this I get rave reviews! Easy to make- delicious and you can make it using all canned ingredients. (use petite diced tomatoes, drained). Whenever I make this, I ask myself why I waited so long to make it again!"
"Very tasty salad. My family liked this. I will make this again."
