Once again out of consideration for Hubs' sensitive innards I switched celery for the corn. Normally I rate recipes higher than he does but on this occasion that was reversed. He found this a lot more palatable than I did. As for me I didn't think it all that enhanced from the regular ol' can of beans. Also I didn't care for the lime juice here and would have preferred lemon. Extra vegetables would have been nice for flavor and interest as well as some seasoning - fresh herbs maybe garlic salt or fresh garlic. An okay starting point but that's about it at least for me.

Delicious! I have been using allrecipes.com for years and this is only the third recipe I have rated 5 stars. This is unbelievably good considering the simple ingredients. The fresh lime juice and basil are key. I used fresh corn cherry tomatoes and basil from my garden. What a wonderful way to use up summer garden bounty. I made it once with fresh chives from my garden instead of onion and it was wonderful. Read More

I used white cannellini beans an 11oz can of summer sweet corn dried basil and left out the lemon zest. Quick prep (I did let it steep overnight). Very refreshing healthy side dish. Read More

Very good and beautiful too. I loved the lime in this. I used pinto beans because I dislike kidney beans (I bet the white would be good though). I used a garlic clove instead of an onion. Also just needed 1/2 TBS. of oil. Read More

Really healthy and fresh. I used a can of black beans and a can of small white beans and about 1c of leftover steamed edamame. Used 2 ears of leftover corn cut off the cob and used the zest and juice of a lime with the olive oil. I also used red onion as my onion of choice. Very light and refreshing salad....travels well and did not need to worry about a mayo based salad on a hot day. Will make again. Thanks! Read More
