Made a half batch of this as written and loved it. So did my "meh - maybe I'll eat a spoonful to see" family members. Yeah, tell that to the almost empty bowl in the fridge. Next time I'll make a full batch with just a couple of additions for "fun" cause this is a very versatile recipe. Thanks Henry!

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.
