With a full-time job and my own catering business, I appreciate delicious food that can be prepared ahead, like this colorful zippy salad. My family and friends are glad to sample the new dishes I prepare, especially when they turn out as good as this one. -Henry Tindal, Red Bank, New Jersey

"Excellent salad! I had some leftover cooked corn on the cob, so I cut it off the cob and used that instead of the frozen corn. I don't like raw onion in salads, so I put a little dried minced onion in the dressing. Had no zucchini so left it out. I even skipped the green chilies, but did use a little extra on the sweet red pepper because I had some. It was absolutely delicious even with all the liberties I took with the recipe. I plan to make it again for a church potluck this weekend. A keeper!"

"Delicious salad! I exchanged the zucchini for 2 cans (16 oz each) Black Beans. It was very tasty. I served it at a family picnic potluck and received rave reviews and requests for the recipe. I'll for sure make it again."
