Summer 2004, The EatingWell Diabetes Cookbook (2005)

Your rating: None Average: 4.3 (97 votes)

This simple, fresh-tasting salad adds delicious variety to grilled foods, such as salmon, halibut, chicken or pork. Browning the corn in a skillet gives it a nutty, caramelized flavor that contrasts with the sweetness of the mango.



READER'S COMMENT:
"I did enjoy this salad, but it is REALLY spicy. I enjoy spicy foods, but this was almost too spicy for me and I even left out a couple of the chipotle peppers! "
