Reviews for Summer Corn Salad
"Followed recipe as is. Just okay. Couldn't taste the lime or hot sauce at all, too much oil. Not terribly appealing the next day, was very watery with the cukes & tomatoes giving up their juice. Next time I would maybe try cilantro instead of basil. Fresh tasting, but blah even with the feta & fresh basil."
"This salad is like summer in a bowl. I have made this many times and never have any leftovers. Use fresh corn and basil, if possible - it makes all the difference. I have made it without the onion and it is still delicious."
"Made this for supper two nights ago. We loved it. Definitely making this one again."
"I have made this salad several times over the past couple of weeks. It's fresh, it's healthy, it's delicious! I took it to a birthday cookout and had numerous compliments! I was hoping for leftovers, but there weren't any-oh well, time to make a new batch!"
