"Great summer salad. I usually end up adjusting the chipotle and lime juice depending on who I am making dinner for. This is a perfect summer salad, great for BBQ."

fresh poblano chile pepper
chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped, or to taste
avocado - peeled, pitted, and cut into chunks
chopped fresh cilantro
slices red onion
Wonderful! I had to sub an Anaheim Chili for the Poblano as that's all I could find. Followed the recipe to a "T" otherwise - A delicious accompaniment to our boiled shrimp & crab cakes!
Very tasty! I didn't have avocado, so didn't use but I do think it would be a nice addition.
Made this to go with BBQ ribs last night and it was delicious! I followed the recipe exactly except that I forgot to add the avocado. It was all ready to be added and somehow was still on the counter at the end of dinner. I will definitely make this again, with the avocado. I think the avocado would have added a nice creaminess that would have added to the dish but I loved it all the same!
I first saw this salad in Sunset and loved it! We have it several times a month during the summer. It's also an excellent potluck dish. I substituted slivered sweet onions (Walla Walla) for the hotter red onion.
Delicious and such a fresh taste!
Made this salad for a pot luck event. Even doubled, it did not seem like that much. Also, the prep time was greater than indicated on the recipe. I added more salt as others mentioned. Prepared the recipe as written with a little more cilantro. It was totally awesome and the bowl was empty!
I agree with one other reviewer that more corn/peppers were needed in order to arrive at 3 1/2 cups of salad!! I used 5 large ears of corn, 3 Annaheim peppers (poblanos not available at the grocery), and 2 avocados. The mixture provided a lot of sophisticated taste; however, I would recommend adding salt to the corn mixture, not just in the dressing. Otherwise, the flavors don't come out as much. I used chipotle powder as well. Give it a try for a vegetable/salad offering that's different than the same old lettuce & tomato deal.
very good but no way do you get that many servings out of it.
