Comments on this Recipe

I LOVED this salad! I used Chipotle Mustard instead of the whole grain and it gave it TONS of flavor! I recommend using different types of mustard to play with the flavor. I didn't add the celery (not a fan) and it came out just as good. :)

i made this recipe twice. once with corn and once without the corn. i preferred the ommitted corn recipe much more than the other

I reduce the celery and chop it very small and add in a couple medium sized tomatoes. Very refreshing, easy to make.

i've made this twice now. the first time i made for a potluck party i was going to. i doubled up the recipe of course. and used extra avocados. everyone loved it. there was none left in the bowl and none left on anyone's plates. i was very pleased. the next time i made it for my family. they too ate it all up. love this dish and it's so easy to make. that's a plus. . . espicially if you're in a hurry.

Great recipe. I add the hearts of palm and saute the celery, red pepper and green onions before adding them (a la the stacked salad recipe). This takes the edge off the celery.

I am not a huge fan of this recipe. It tasted rather flavorless. If I make this again I'm adding salt, pepper, and jalapeno.

Ever since this recipe came out in 2007, I've made it so many times! It is my go-to dish to bring to barbecues, and people ALWAYS love it - especially with chips. I usually just use the same amount of dressing called for and I add a whole can of black beans, a whole pepper, a small bag of frozen corn, a whole bunch of green onions, and 2 avocados. I usually omit the celery. Yum!

Oh! And I always use ground mustard instead of whole grain mustard...

This is fantastic. Great with chips, on tacos or tostadas and nachos. Very filling, so don't overeat.

Agreed! Very easy to make, fresh taste. Goes as a great side dish or potluck fave. I also omit the corn and celery, and I add tomato and the whole can of beans.

Super easy to make, great on hot days. I added a jalapeno to the recipe for a little extra kick. 1+

Made this today for a Fourth of July get-together and it was really, really good. Very easy to make; came together in a snap. I kept the celery and I really liked the crunch. Will definitely make again!

This salad is also great with a diced mango thrown in. I actually eat it for breakfast in the summer!

Yum

Omitted corn and green onion and added a mango and jalapeño. Delicious!
