This salad was Awesome! ! Didn't change a thing cuz if it ain't broke, don't fix it! Instead of canned corn, I used a leftover corn on the cob. I served it with Mexican beef tacos. Thank you Barilla

OUTSTANDING!!! I didn't change anything from the recipe except I couldn't find cotijo cheese so I had to sub feta. This was outstanding! We added some pre-cooked and diced chicken breasts and made it a meal! I will absolutely be making this again, won't change a thing!
