This is out of this world! I cut the sugar in half, used rice vinegar and used sweet yellow canned corn and regular onion - it was delicious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It doesn't specify - but be sure to drain liquid from beans and corn before dumping into salsa (some people might not know better, just thought I'd share). This could also be a nice side dish as well without chips. It's fabulous!

This salsa just isn't for us. It is entirely too sweet for me, even after reducing the amount of sugar. In order to save all of these beautiful vegetables and beans, I added a heafty sprinkling of hot sauce and garlic powder. This helped, but it was still much too sweet. Thanks anyway!

I've brought this to several parties and it's a hit every time! The only change I make is I use 1/2 the amount of sugar the recipe calls for and I find that I have to drain 99% the liquid before serving. Also, try adding avocado but it's good with or without that!

Great taste, but a little too much sugar with red wine vinegar. I added fresh basil. YUM!

I followed the instructions exactly with great results. It does make a big batch, so buy plenty of chips! I served the salsa with blue corn chips--yummy!

Fantastic! I had something like this at a party recently and could not stop thinking about it; this is really close to what I had. I also used half the amount of sugar and super-sweet corn. I used a whole red onion, but that's your prerogative. I don't know if there's a difference between "rice wine vinegar" and "rice vinegar", but I used rice vinegar because it was all I had and it was delicious.

I too cut the amount of sugar in half. I found that this was perfect. I also added cilantro for that extra something, and I loved it.

If you cut sugar way down, add red wine vinegar instead of rice vinegar, and touch of cumin and cilantro it rates a five !
