    Very limey only use 1 tablespoon. I also left out the cucumber and added smoked paprika. Really refreshing and great for a summer BBQ.

    Very good! You could easily add beans in this to make it even more filling! I served this with chips for fun.. also added some other spices into the dip since it was a little too limey for me. Added paprika, chili powder, red pepper flakes, etc. would definitely make this again.

    This came out great, everyone loved it. I didn’t have chipotle pepper so I added a tablespoon of chipotle mayo. Also added a tablespoon of red wine vinegar as others suggested. It was delicious and will become a nice healthy staple side dish in our family! I also roasted a can of corn along with the corn on cob and it worked great! We roasted the corn in oven because we have no grill.

    It was very good but we thought the dressing was missing something so the 2nd time we added one TBSP of red wine vinegar and this provided the zing we were looking for. Doubled the dressing recipes both times as we added more ingredients. We added halved grape tomatoes, yellow peppers and orange peppers, jicama and two avocados., plus whatever salad greens we had on hand. The first time we added cooked shrimp and the second time grilled chicken. Both times our guests really enjoyed. Great summer time meal on a hot day.

    Awesome! This is a corn salad that is good for you but tastes like it isn't. No modifications necessary. Your family will LOVE it! My two year old even liked it. I didn't use the cheese because I didn't have any.

    this was very good but i would do a bit less of the veggies besides the corn. i could not find queso fresco so i just did shredded jack.
