This recipe had a great taste to it, but I found it a bit watery for some reason. I didn't add anything extra and the corn was drained pretty well. Who knows? I'll try it again though because it tasted great. I only used two jalapenos though because I don't like things too spicy, and it was perfect for my taste.

I used regular sweet onion and chopped them up fine. The jalepeno isn't too hot. Overall it's delicious and when made with low-fat mayo (like I did) it's a GREAT, healthy alternative to most mayo salads for a picnic.
