    Didn't change one thing with this recipe. I dressed it lightly and left it overnight in the fridge. Delicious  -  25 Jul 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    I made this salad for the first time for a party and had 5 people tell me it was absolutely the best corn salad they've ever had. I was out of mayo that day and substituted Ranch dressing for the mayo. Other that that it was perfect the way the menu read. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. Will be a definite keeper.  -  23 May 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
