Really enjoyed this when prepared per directions.Then I added lime zest and juice and fresh cilantro and it is delecious beyond description!Thanks for this recipe....its a new favorite.



As written, this recipe is a bit bland. I improved the flavour by adding lime juice, chopped cilantro, minced garlic and sea salt. Much, much better after those additions.



I modified this quite a bit incorporating suggestions of other reviewers. I first made it during the winter when good tomatoes were hard to find. As modified i likeed both the ease and taste. --2 avocado, peeled and cut into bite-size chunks (make sure avocados not too ripe. Stores better and longer if avocado a little green) --2 medium cans of diced tomatoes and 1 medium can of diced tomatoes with chilis (all very well drained). Omitted chilis, green onions, hot sauce, and roma tomatoes. --Zest and juice of one lime --Large bunch of cilantro (finely chopped) (fresh cilantro is key to taste) --1 tablespoon of store bought minced garlic (the fresh garlic was a little raw tasting) --1 can whole kernel corn (drained; we like the taste of vacuum packed corn best) --2 cans black beans rinsed and drained --1/4 cup Red Wine Vinegar --1/4 olive oil --salt and pepper to taste. Mix all together and store in refrigerator. Makes a great side that goes with so many things--chips, crackers, or just by itself. I've shared this recipe with many people. We LOVE poor man caviar
