    nanpie's Note:

    This is a great, quick, fresh tasting salad with a Mexican "flair" that's easy to whip-up for cookouts or picnics or anytime you're grilling. I got it originally from, but have modified it slightly(mainly less oil, more cayenne). It's a terrifc way to use the cukes from your garden and your homegrown tomatoes could easily be used in place of the grape tomatoes. Cannellini beans, garbanzo beans or black-eyed peas can be substituted for the butter beans. Frozen vs canned is a matter of preference.

      Colorful and refreshing salad. We liked the contrast in flavors between the earthy butterbeans, the sweetness of the corn and tomatoes, and the brightness of the cilantro. We also enjoyed the contrast in textures of the crunchy cucumber, and soft and slighlty chewy beans. We'll make this again with just a bit more cumin and may throw in a bell pepper for fun. Thanks nanpie. Made for pick-a-chef Fall '09.

      This is a great little salad, had most of the ingredients laying around. It is not summer here by a long shot, but when it arrives I will try this again with veggies from my garden. Nice refreshing flavor.
