The cumin and cilantro give this salad a delicious southwest
flavor. It goes great with any grilled meat or sandwiches.

  12. I had to look up what cilantro is in Google ~ it's called "coriander" over here in the UK.
    Mmmm ... your salad looks gorgeous.

  14. After the food in my food success in my home that included both beans AND corn like this, I might have to give this a whirl. Don't drop over out of your chair, Betsy.

    I had to crack up though...chop in even 1/2" squares...should I measure? Why would you put that in there knowing I'm going to read this? I know, you thought there was no chance I'd ever make it, right?!

  15. Kayren ~ you ARE funny! As you can see by the picture, I didn't cut everything in a perfect 1/2 inch. No, don't you dare get out your ruler! :)

  17. Justin ~ we call the plant leaves cilantro and the seed (usually ground into a powdered spice) coriander..which I love, too, but it tastes completely different.

  20. I never realized ho easy it is to cut fresh corn off the cob. It's so worth it. This looks like a variation of a recipe my mother had for 5 bean salad, a Midwestern recipe. You do not, however, have sugar.
