YUM! I loved the combination of flavors in this! I didn't have jalapeno peppers so I left them out but then it seemed like it needed some spunk so I added a little hot sauce. Also, it says salt to taste, just FYI, I used a little salt when I cooked the rice and then added one tsp. salt to the whole mixture. I diced the green pepper and onion very small to keep them small in proportion to the main ingredients. This is a keeper!

Excellent! Light, refreshing, and delicious. Only minor changes: I used a can of Mexicorn and omitted the onions out of preference. Thanks! :)

This is a wonderful salad! The combination of flavors is great; the lime gives the salad a wonderfully light, refreshing taste. Because my family doesn't care for spicy things (and because I didn't have any!) I omitted the jalapeno peppers, but this is still a very tasty, easy to make salad. Thanks for sharing!
