Southwestern Corn Salad

This is the other corn salad that was in our local newspaper a while back.  After the rousing success of the Thai corn salad I wasn’t very sure that this one could even come close, but it sounded good, and I’m always looking for different salad recipies, so I tried it.  And it’s really good!  The corn is sweet and delicious, and the flavors really compliment each other perfectly, but I think that next time I will put a little more crushed red chilies in.

After working all of my life, I retired in June, 2011. I try to use my extra time to rest, exercise, paint my fingernails, play with my 9 cats, spend time with my husband, Al, and cook healthy and lower fat recipies for us to eat. I try to use as many fruits and vegetables in my menus as I can cram in, sometimes to the complaints of the hubs - LOL! I am also making over some of my old favorites to be heathier with more vegetables in them, and less fat.
