"This recipe had a great taste to it, but I found it a bit watery for some reason. I didn't add anything extra and the corn was drained pretty well. Who knows? I'll try it again though because it tasted great. I only used two jalapenos though because I don't like things too spicy, and it was perfect for my taste."

"I used regular sweet onion and chopped them up fine. The jalepeno isn't too hot. Overall it's delicious and when made with low-fat mayo (like I did) it's a GREAT, healthy alternative to most mayo salads for a picnic."
