    Huge hit in our house, my son refuses to eat other salads now.

    I love this recipe. I've made it multiple times for potlucks and barbecues and it's always a hit. I typically use yogurt, feta cheese and canned corn.

    Oh man this was out of the world- we did a few changes- I added basil as well ( I love cilantro but wanted a few other flavour notes). I used canned roasted red peppers- I used plain coconut yogurt and we used feta and instead of jalapeño I used Serrano fresh from the garden. Geez it was so good - I will make it again. I cannot believe how tasty it was- but fresh corn if you have it is the way to go.

    Easy and delicious. I skipped the cojita and it worked just fine.

    So good! I didn’t have pepper so I substituted mango, and it really kicked the flavours up to another level!

    It was great. Will make some adjustments next time and make more of it. Recipe was easy to follow

    I love the salad version!!!! Made it this evening. I made a few tweaks of my own but, overall ..... light, delicious, and fun to make. Slipped it in the recipe box and can’t wait to share with friends !!!

    So delicious!!! I used canned corn and omitted the red pepper and jalapeño since I didn’t have any, but should’ve made a bigger batch!
