This delicious salad doubles as a great Southwestern-style side dish or as a salsa with chips. The lime and jalapeno give it the perfect zest and kick. My family loves this. So will yours!

Really loved this salad the only reason that I did not give it 5 stars is I thought it could use a little more kick. I added a few tablespoons of salsa (Hot and spicy) and that really spiced it up and enhanced the flavor. It is also a great diet food tasty and low cal. Read More

It was good but nothing special. Liked the spiciness and the lime. Needed something else though and I'm not quite sure what. Some vinegar? A little sweet? For a southwest salad/side dish I like Mexican Bean Salad from this site a lot better. Read More

Great recipe! I made it exactly as is but used more fajita seasoning to spice it up even more. Turned out fantastic and everyone loved it. I used 8 ears of fresh corn and turned the heat up to medium high because medium just wasn't getting it done well. Will definitely keep and make again! Read More

I didn't have any red bell pepper on hand. Without the bell pepper it only gets 3 stars. I am pretty sure the bell pepper would have made it 4 stars so I am rating it accordingly. Read More

Used shoepeg corn because I had a can open and it was still good. I will try fresh that I've grilled next time. Read More
