    I added just a touch of sugar (about a teaspoon) to take the sharp edge off. One serving is about 3 ounces, which fills about seven baked tortilla scoops. Baked scoops are 10 calories each, so one scoop FULL of cowboy caviar is only 20 calories! - 11/25/07

    This is a great recipe! I made it for a bbq and I got a ton of comments on how good it is. The second time I made it I put all the ingredients together except for the avocado and stored it in the fridge over night so all the flavors melded together. Add avocado right before serving. Thanks Janae! - 6/22/07

    I LOVE this recipe!! Colorful and flavorful and a unanimous hit. I add a couple diced peppers for spice as it's otherwise pretty mild, & omit the oil & add extra lime juice. Also good on hot dogs, salads, etc... omit the avocado and it will keep longer, but you're missing a whole layer of flavor! :) - 6/5/07

    You definitely don't need the oil...I'm from Texas- so adding the cumin, garlic & pepper was great--to keep it kid friendly...I didn't add jalapeno pepper- BUT you could! DELISH - 7/17/09

    The olive oil isn't necessary and neither is the vinegar with the addition of more lime juice and I added cumin to kick it up a notch. My most requested recipe! And the baked Scoops are essential for parties. - 5/27/08

    Yum! I will definitely make this again. Perfect as is for kids and family. Personally I would add some spice by adding hot salsa or hot peppers and maybe some cumin. - 7/10/09

    I make this using frozen veggies (to cut down on sodium) and add a chopped hot pepper. This is great with celery sticks. - 1/28/09

    I just made this and have only tasted it from the taste testing as I went along, but it's delicious. I added in some chopped red pepper, and used parsley instead of cilantro. I halved the oil for fewer calories. Can't wait to serve! - 3/1/09

    I put this on top of a filet of Tilapia and it was delicious. Also, I forgot to by Red Wine Vinegar so I used Balsamic and it was delicious. - 10/7/07

    I've just made this and while I am no wizard in the kitchen, it came out great. Very tastey. Can anyone tell me how to figure out what the size of a single serving is? I see the whole thing makes 24 servings, but since I am watching cal., I need to know a single serving size. Thanks. - 1/27/09

    I have made this as a low cal dinner with wheat chips but I topped the salsa with just lime juice. No olive oil or vinegar and it still taste great, everyone at work wants to know what I am eating. - 3/21/09

    Took this to our church campmeeting dinners and the pastor and several men requested it over and over again! I love it too except I leave the corn out for myself. Wonderful recipe, thanks for sharing. - 10/18/09
