    This was fresh and tasty: made a nice change to replace a boring old garden salad. I couldn't help but add some freshly minced garlic too.  -  21 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Delicious, easy and fresh. I added toasted pine nuts instead of corn.  -  19 Mar 2011  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
