    great recipe, added cucumber and Mrs.Dash garlic and herb salt free for taste instead of cilantro, substitued red wine vinegar for lime juice, great cold salad for the hot summer! - 6/7/11

    We loved it. Made exactly as instructed but I'm already thinking about fun variations for this recipe. My only complaint is the prep time is misleading -- took at least 20 minutes to chop all that stuff up. I am forwarding the recipe to my relatives to share! - 7/18/10

    This was good, but a bit bland, so I added cumin and chili powder and it was perfect. I also used less cilantro. - 6/8/08

    Didn't do the lime juice...Great recipe! I love this on a hot day. Can be added to grilled chicken for a great burrito filling! - 6/21/11

    Very Good. I added finely chopped green pepper, garlic salt and only 1.5oz of lime juice. I put it on some tortilla chips and it was a suprisingly filling meal! Next time, I think I will grill a couple of chicken breasts, use this as a side with chips, and it will be a great meal for my family. - 6/8/08

    Wonderful!! I made a few changes. i am not a cilantro type person so that was omitted. I also don't like fresh onions, but don't mind the dehydrated kind so I used some of that. No limes in the house so added lemon juice and then I added Mrs. Dash. Superb. great in a tortilla or as a side dish. - 1/29/13

    My family didn't really like this...they said they expected it to taste kind of like Cowboy Caviar but it was very bland. Eh, I didn't think it was bad at all but probably won't make it again since the crew didn't like it. Thanks for sharing! - 1/2/13

    Fantastic dish. I have made this twice now. I doubled the avocado the second time around. It still came out well. I use fresh corn that I cook in the microwave, let cool, then cut off the cob. I also used Trader Joe's Black Beans because they're not packed in corn syrup like many other brands! - 8/28/12

    It was a great basic but bland. I added chopped garlic, added cumin, chili powder, balsamic and cayenne pepper...and WHOA was it great with corn chips! I will try that on a Boca or with some chips and grilled chicken. Thank you, CREATIVELIZA! I will make this again and again. - 4/24/11

    I used red onion and added a bit more cilantro for some extra zip. This was very, very good - I almost gave it a 5 star incredible rating. Also very healthy for you with protein, fiber, vegetables and healthy fats. - 4/6/08

    I made a few changes. I used lemon instead of lime juice and I added hot banana peppers, chopped to give it more kick. I didn't have any cilantro but it turned out very good. Thanks. I will eat this again. - 9/30/13

    I make this, but I found if you grill your corn (take off husk, and put in foil, right on the girll for 10 minutes turning) then cut the corn, it really adds more flavor to this recipe. I get more compliments on it!! Also a tsp of honey! - 8/25/13

  • This recipe is wonderful. I had one serving for lunch and was full. It is also great because I live a long way from a grocery store. Onions, celery and avocados are easy to keep and I love the canned addition of black beans and corn. YUM! - 8/4/14
