"This salad was great! I just made two changes, I used half the amount of onion and I broiled the corn in the oven until it had a little bit of char marks."

"This salad was very popular with friends who came to over. We ate it as a salad, and later in the day with tortilla chips like salsa. With the few remaining leftovers, I plan to make soup with leftover chunked chicken breasts and chopped tomatoes!"
