LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this salad! I have made it numerous times this summer and many friends and family have asked for the recipe. The only change that I made was using 1/4 cup instead of 1/2 cup of oil to cut some calories (doesn't need all that oil). I use about 2 cups of fresh corn, cooked and cut off the cob. It's great eaten just as is, or sometimes I add grated cheddar cheese and cherry tomatoes, halved, and I serve it as a dip with tortilla chips or in a wrap. Flavor improves after chilling for several hours...........even better the next day. Try it you won't be sorry!

Loved it!! I used a full bag of Basmati rice, 12oz, added an additional can of beans. I had pink beans on hand and I doubled the dressing so as to have extra on hand if the rice got 'dry' after the initial absorbtion. Was even better the next day.
