I had a spare cucumber in the fridge and found this recipe, so I thought I would try. I only changed one thing. I used one whole tomato in place of the canned. I ate some as soon as I was done making, but tried it later after letting it sit in the fridge, and it was much better. Will make again. Read More

I can't believe this received such good reviews!! My boyfriend and I didn't like this salad at all and ended up throwing it all in the garbage! It was way too hot and the corn made it very hard to eat!! Only giving it 2 stars bc it was easy to make! Read More

This was marvelous. I used one huge English cucumber, diced tomatoes with green pepper, celery and onions, diced red onion, no bell peppers, 2 ears fresh corn, cut from the cob, fresh cilantro, and lots more garlic. Next time I'm invited to a BBQ or something I am taking this! Read More

This was nice and refreshing. I used Rotel tomatoes and cut down on the pepper flakes but it was still pretty spicy. I liked it that way but it was too spicy for my husband. Next time I will use regular stewed tomatoes. I also added a tablespoon or so of sugar to give a hint of sweetness and take away some of the tartness of the vinegar. Read More

Very good salad. I followed AMHONG's tweakings from below and firmly concur with her suggestion to use fresh cilantro. Dried cilantro is awful and doesn't improve any dish it is put in. Read More

This salad was absolutely wonderful! It was so flavorful and really refreshing! I don't know why one review was so bad or why they didn't like it. The flavors were really good and everyone who ate it loved it! The only changes I made were that I used two cucumbers instead of one half of each bell pepper 2/3 of the corn 1/2 TBS. of the red pepper flakes and a dash of sugar. I also used fresh cilantro... dried wouldn't be the same. Anyway this was a great side dish and is definately a keeper! Read More

This was delicious! I made a few changes after reading reviews. I 1 cup of cherry tomatoes and added a little water and another tbsp of vinegar. I used fresh cilantro. The salad was even better the NEXT DAY. I recommend making this a day ahead of time to have all the saesoning really soak into the veggies. DELISH! Read More
