This was a great side dish. I used olive oil and only used about 1 Tbsp. and added a 1/2 can of drained black beans and fresh lime. Thanks

A good side dish with Mexican meals.

Hmmm, something different - I've never made anything like this before. I made it exactly as described, and it was good to snack on by scooping it up with corn tortilla chips. I do wonder, though...

I added lime juice, tabasco and avocado. Took it to a dinner party and got compliments from people who are good cooks, so a keeper for the recipe box! Thanks.

I made this without the peppers and onions. We really enjoyed it and I'm making it again as a cold salad for a potluck dinner. If you like corn and salsa, you'll like this.

A few alterations, did not grill veggies or use butter as I did not think it needed it. Added some black olives and served with Salsa Chicken recipe from this site. Very good.

I was excited to make this as a side dish for enchiladas and beans, but I was pretty disapointed in the lack of flavor. It was nice to have fresh chopped veggies on the plate, but it really lack...

This was phenominal and easy to make. I would highly recommend it to everyone. Add a chopped fire grilled hatch chili pepper to it and put some pep in your friends step. LOL Sincerely Brook ...

Very tasty and my husband loved this one.
