Really enjoyed this for lunch today along with some cheese crackers and fresh fruit. I don't think I would make it with anything BUT fresh corn; that crunchiness really is part of what I think makes this salad taste so good. The lime-basil dressing is the perfect complement to these veggies and that occasional pop of jalapeño wakes you up. Very nice salad cookbookangie. Read More

Very nice and fresh! The only change is I used a small finely chopped Thai bird chili instead of jalapeno as I live in Thailand and they are everywhere for free.:) Read More

It is waiting in the fridge for supper tomorrow... but without the 'party-ing' time the hubs rates it thumbs up! I used fresh corn on the cob cut off from leftovers tonight (3 ears worth)and Sweet 100 tomatoes which are a little larger than cherry tomatoes.... can't wait! -- PS it was a delicious hit! Keep well for a couple of days I recommend trying it if you are considering it! Read More

Really good. We had this on a day that was 37 outside. Very refreshing. Will make it again FOR SURE! Can't wait for the leftovers tomorrow. I did not have time to refrigerate before eating. Would have been even better colder (my fault). Read More

Dressing is super easy and the vegetables are quick to assemble. Makes a perfect summer side dish with all those fresh-from-the-garden ingredients. And it's very pretty too with all the reds and yellows and greens. Delicious. Read More

This is deelish! I used tomatoes cukes and basil from my garden and fresh corn cut off the cob. I didn't change anything except I didn't have a jalapeno which I think would have been great but this was great without it. Everyone that tried it loved it and I'll definitely make this again. Read More

I made this last night even though I was skeptical because it seemed so simple. I have lots of the ingredients from our garden and so I gave it a try. It was amazingly delicious so much so that it was devoured by a family that doesn't even like cucumber. We will have this as a side with any Mexican entry. Very delicious! Read More
